Ok all, it turned out to only be a single fusion but they had to do something else (not sure what is was) because she found a fracture of one of my vertebrae,
Well surgery was 3 hours but recovery room was 7 hours! Apparently they could not control my pain, Well somewhere about midnight i guess they got me back to my room. I had to be transfused with 3 units of blood.
Then i was sooooooo doped up that they couldn;t keep me awake except ti vomit for three days. They potassium was low from vomiting, so i had to have IV potassium and oral potassium. I was in four days instead of two,
The pain now is ok. My foot drop seeks to be better, but now i have a bad sciatic pain going down my right side that was not there before surgery.
I am doing well, I have a fentanyl patch for pain, and demerol for breaskthrough pain.
I hope everyone has a great christmas!! We did here.
