Wow, so Mel had a 7 hour surgery??!
I know we are all going to be different, but I realized that I have no idea how long (not even a ballpark) it might take for my 2 level (possibly 3 level) PLIF coming up in a week.
Could you all chime in and give us a heads up on how long your surgery was?
Is it common to have transfusions too?
And how soon before surgery do you need to donate if you are donating for yourself?
Thanks ina advance for any insight!
