Hi all, it's me again
. I am still getting mentally prepared for T10-L3 fusion on April 14th (Good Friday... has to be a sign). I am so terrified that the fusion won't provide relief (facet joint disease and failed laminectomy syndrome). Is there anything that a fusion Can't help with? Meaning will the fusion take care of most all of the current movement/ inflammation issues? Please give me some encouragement. I hurt so bad. I am a teacher and I am literally almost in tears at the end of the day. My students come up and tell me to feel better like they are my parents... it is Awful to feel so helpless...
1) Schwannoma removal (1) @ L2-L3 (2001)
2) Schwannoma removal (3) @ T11-L3 (2008)
3) Failed laminectomy syndrome T11-L2, facet joint disease, ongoing schwannoma formation. Fusion scheduled from T10-L3 (April 12th, 2017). Chronic pain that never goes away
