My surgery is finally approaching. Monday August4th. The ortho told me at pre op that it is at least a 2 level fusion TLIF and removal of five cysts. My diabetes may hinder somewhat but I have confidence in him to do what is right.
My concern is all the messages I have been reading about bad experiences in hospital and pain control. It makes me even more anxious!!!
I stopped pain meds a month ago, per os orders. Will have pump.
Just wanted to say without being rude, that reading all of this makes the wait even worse.
But, I do thank everyone who welcomed me and wished me well.And, yes I have 'recovered' from son's elopement. Guess it gave me something else to think about!!
Anyway, Can't wait until Monday.
Oh, the hospital 's ortho unit was built for my os's practice. Was feeling good about upcoming hospital stay until I read all the
Having L4 L5 fusion, possible more. With cage, screws, pins and removal of 5 cysts.
