Charry suggested I start the October topic. I'm scheduled for an ACDF C5-6 October 4. I'm anxious and apprehensive at the same time.

Hope all others with upcoming surgeries aren't dreading it very much. I want to wish all of you the best of luck.

    to ask if other members with surgeries scheduled in October will post the dates here?

  • Ron goes in October 13th for his second shoulder replacement surgery.

    I wish each and every one of you facing surgery a positive outcome and speedy recovery.

  • I hope and wish the best for all of you.

  • My ACDF C6 C7 is schedule for Oct 8, originally it was Oct 22, but I thankfully got it moved up. I'm really nervous about it. I had and ACDF C4 C5 C6 in Aug 09 and with this one coming up there are a couple of "not sure" factors. The surgeon is not sure it's going to fuse. There are questions of if they will have to redo part of my previous fusion. Then there are discs above/below the fusion that may go and will I be back in the or in another year. I'm praying for a good outcome.
  • Debbie, Ron and mcdermoju,

    Wishing you well and keeping you in my heart-thoughts and prayers with your surgeries.

    Remember...the body has an amazing ability to heal !

    Im booked in for 2 stimulator trials on the 13th of October..One the whole length of my spine and the other across the bottom of my lumbar region and Im very anxious about it..

    If the trials dont work its a pain pump for me so I have everything possible crossed that the trials will be a success..

    Lets hear from anyone else who has October Surgery ??
  • I'm having fusion of L4/5 on October 19th and I'm looking forward to it so I can get on with the rest of my life.
    Good luck to everyone 'under the knife' in the near future.
