Hi, everyone. I am having 2 part lumbar spinal fusion next month. I have adult scoliosis and degenerative disc disease. I am 63 and really nervous about this surgery. However, I am tired of being in pain. I understand the neurosurgeon will do L3-4 , and L 4-5 through my abdomen, Then 2 days later, through my side, L1 to L3. Anyone offer any advice??????? After a week in the hospital. should I be able to go home or will I need rehab. Doctor says we will have to see about whether that is necessary.
