New (again!)

Hi, I was a regular about six years ago when I underwent tree-level lumbar fusion. My surgery went very well, recovery uneventful and I was doing wonderfully. Unfortunately, what happened with many of you, eventually one of the vertebra above the fusion site collapsed so now I am scheduled for another surgery on Aug 14. The good news is that it should be a less involved surgery than the previous one, mostly my spine needs to be stabilized. Nevertheless it is a surgery, and I am six years older! While my surgeon is very good and I trust him 100%, I still feel a bit apprehensive. So I decided to rejoin this forum as nobody can provide me with the same empathy and understanding as the members here. I am relaying on all your support.
