I have been reading this website for two months now and decided to join.
Facing L4 TLIF fusion on August 4th. Also have many cysts he will remove.
My history is 03 removal of cyst in spine and spine every since. The surgeon said my facet joints are totaly gone.
Lots of pain and meds don't work anymore and worst of all, can't sleep.
The cardio won't give me clearance until a chemical stress test on July 11th.
Sorry for rambling on and on but have lots of questions and wondering if anyone else had cardio problems before surgery
Surgeon did say
'you hated me after your last surgery, but you will really hate me now',I really trust him though and wouldn't let anyone else touch me.
thank you so much and look forward to more talks.
