Had all the pre op testing and cleared , had the pre op appointment with my surgeon last week and now I'm trying to be in peace with myself as the day approaches . The only problem,I had to stop most of my medications except the opiates and I have muscle spasms, and nerve pains.with only 3 days left in December any other Spineys out there with January surgeries?
