I'm scheduled for a 360 fusion at L5/S1 after two previous surgeries failed to yield lasting results.
I'm in good shape. I do what I can to stay active, which is a far cry from my "previous" life.
My concerns lie with the abdominal portion of the 360 fusion. I understand the purpose, but it scares the hell out of me.
Does anyone have any experiences of their own about 360 fusion surgery and that gnarly abdominal portion?
