3rd surgery coming up and im nervous



  • I think a lot of us Spineys do suffer some depression after surgery. In my own case, my expectations of a "cure" were extremely high and I did not expect such a long recovery. Since you have already had 2 surgeries, you know the drill! I wish you the best next week and a good recovery! Keep us posted when you can.
  • Hi!

    I am waiting for my 4th fusion now- have had an uphill battle to get funding for the BMP but I heard a rumour that the surgery can go ahead in Feb but i'm waiting for it to be confirmed.

    I am super nervous now as I had complications after my last surgery in 06 and i have had to wait solong for this one- it has let the nervousness to grow out of proportion so I am the most nervous I have ever been!

    I hope you're feeling ok now and that you have a quick recovery this time

    Love Em x
