Hi, first time poster. My July 14 surgery date is just around the corner. 'Had my pre-op exam today with my GP, blood typing next week and then it's the big day on the 14th. I am hoping for the best but prepared for the worst. Fusion is necessary as there are multiple damaged disks and the laminectomy alone will not support the spine, kind of like building a house on sink hole I'm told. The surgeon will be using the Medtronic infuse bone graft/Lt Cage Lumbar Fusion device.
Any advice would be appreciated. I know its going to be a long recovery period and at 58 I am no youngster. Thanks.
