Hi. I recently had revision of L3-S1 with fusion L3-L5 on october 29 this year so only few weeks out. Has L5'S1 fusion in 2005 and nothing but problems since. Have severe DDD so elected to have surgery so I could ayyempt at life again. Im a RN snd gave up my kob of 30+years cuz couldnt do any part of it. I also have huge calcified T7-T8 herniation putting pressure on spinal cord and several crvical issues. My question is how long should I wait betw3n surgeries. Neurosurgeon says 6 months and do thhoracic then 6 months do cervical.. this time around Im wondering maybe I should have not done any of this. So much pain having problems walkinng and dont think zi will survive another surgery. My thoracic area feels like someone stabbing me at all times. I know its only. Been 3 weeks but how does one recover from thoracic surgery if lumbar not totally healed. Im so frustrated and feeling all alone and need some guidance from someone whose been there please!
