I am approaching my two level lumbar fusion consult. I will be an American getting spinal surgery in the Netherlands. Has anyone else been through this in Europe? I feel a bit in the dark, and not speaking Dutch doesn't help. I am afraid of getting this surgery, but I can no longer take care of myself, so I guess it's time to go for it anyway. I have family close by to help me with recovery, and I will be moving back to the states in another 6 months. I would wait until I was back, if I could handle the pain or lack of mobility.
Anyway, if you have any advice, please drop me a line.
