I had my spinal fusion on the 18th. The operating staff and doctor were nice but once I went back to my room let me tell you. I had only one nurse who was nice. The others were mean. They let me run out of pain medicince and left me to suffer with a pain scale of 8 until the nice nurse I mentioned above kept call the doctor on call and get me a little more medicine so my pain level went down to a 5 and the experience with the bed pan was terrible. I did not get any sleep until the second night. I told my doctor the next morning I had not been to sleep. He changed my medicine and the day nurse lied and told him they had given me something for sleep which they did not. Gladly he believed me. I will not go into details about ordeal of the bed pan. But I am home now. And I will never have surgery at that hospital again.
I just want to let everyone know that I survived the surgery but it has been an emotional roll coaster ride.
Hugs to all.
