Well I made it! The surgery itself took aprox 6 hrs.. Surgeon said that the bones were calcified ? It was a two level fusion c56,c67.Doctors orders where colllar for 1 month. My major complaint... I have ben with pain management doc for aprox. one year. My meds are as follows pre surgery. 4-20 mg oxycontin,4-15mg oxycodone, and 4 norcos a day. Well while in hosp I gave them this info and my surgeon also. Get this coming out of surgery they had me on 3or4mg Iv morhine and norco ! I was battling the nurses about my meds ! It was the worst cae I have ever received ! Good news I am home and being taken care of... I do have a question about bone stimulater... Would I be a canidate for this ? If so I will call surgeon tommorow.... Thanks for letting me vent. and sorry for all the mis-spells. Anyway Have a Great day !
