I decided to go through with surgery, it has been the hardest time of my life. The pain is horrible, not just the pain but it's so hard to get comfortable. I had my procedure in Iowa city iowa, they operated on t4 to L4. Has anyone had a similar procedure and if so could you share how you got comfortable? They say to add a lot of pillows but that doesn't seem to help. Muscle relaxers are amazing but once they wear off I feel like a log literally. Please share any post surgery advice.
