Hi. This is my first post. I have had two seperate surgical spinal fusion anterior C4-C6 and then C6-C7. Now I have to have posterior fusion redoing the prior failed surgery with posterior fusion from C3-T2. I am scared to death. Can anyone tell me how bad the pain was with this many levels? Would like to hear how bad it was in the hospital. Do they try to keep you knocked out on medicine. What was it like when you left the hospital? How long did it take step by step, period to period regarding pain? I've had some other surgeries and illnesses that were bad, but this one has me really scared. Thank you for encouragement.
