I have my fusion surgery scheduled for March 9.
I am still terrified. I have read so many stories online about people having chronic pain after the surgery and many saying they wish they had not done it. I'm so discouraged. I have also read some stories of people who are happy they had it done. I am nervous, what if I'm not one of those.
I'm curious though, those people who had fusion and say they regret it I wonder if they hadn't had surgery what their pain or problems would have been?
Anyone have any thoughts?
I'm worried about the quality of life if I do have the surgery, but also if I don't .
BTW I'm 35 and mri showed nothing going on other than the 57 degree left curve. I am not in fantastic shape by any means but I'm on the thin side. Not sure if any of that matters. Oh and Dr said my spine is flexible. He also said I have small bones and I'm wondering if that will make fusin harder or have any effect on surgery?
