Back surgery what to expect



  • @Pja I have a cyst also, how bad was it when you came out of surgery? I’ve heard of a couple of people I know said they were screaming, I’m just terrified

    I must say I have never had a bad experience post-op, the pain was very well controlled as I never felt any discomfort. Granted, being scared going into any surgery is understandable. Ron is correct, be your own advocate, and do your research. You'll be able to decipher good information from bad. Knowledge is power.
