'tony romo had back surgery yesterday and was sent home today. when i had my back surgery for a herniated disc and sciatica like he has, i was in the hospital for 10 days. i guess back surgeries today are different from my first fusion 12 years ago. i have no idea what they do now but my last fusion2 years ago was done through the side and i was in the hospital for 3 days.
I have 4 fusions from L5-3, the latest last May '12 where they fixed my disc that broke.They went through my side this time. I take 40 mg of oxycontin 4x a day and 4 fenatyl lollipops 300 micro gms 4x a day.
