Hi Everyone!! My name is Lynn and I have to have L5-S1 Discotomy and Spinal Fusion next month. Im a lil bit nervous but looking forward to being pain free. I had a c5/6 fusion back in 2009 from a work related injury in 2007...from that I have permant nerve damage that has put me on disability. So I kinda know about having nerve pain, UGH!!! Could anybody give me some info of things I might need at home after the surgery and what Im looking foward to in the post-op phase. My dr told me that cervical and lumbar surgeries are very different.
