Hello. I am looking for all information from anyone and everyone who has had this surgery and what are the pros and cons for this surgery.. I have had other surgeries but nothing that has to do with rods and screws being put in me.. I need to know how long does it usually take for recovery. My doctor told me I will need a walker for at least 2 months and I will need to stay in the hospital over night after the surgery. Also I will need Physical Therapy as well.. That is all the information I got from my doctor.. I do know my doctor has being a doctor for a long time and has only seen 5 other people with this problem. So i am very nervous with a doctor who has maybe done this surgery 5 times.. So if anyone can give me any info on what this surgery is like I would be great fun for any info. ALos you can email me directly with the info at email@example.com. Thank you all and I hope for the best with you all.
