god Bless you, Tweak

: : Is all this worth it for maybe 50% relief from pain? If I don't do the surgery, will they just kick me off all of the pain meds, and then I'll just be one of those people who walk the streets with a shopping cart talking to myself? (I know by then I'll be full blown certifiable).
: : Peace and prayers, and Love, to all of you who know and understand what I'm saying.
: : Tweak.

: I had L5 S1 fusion on October 11th, posterior. The first four days were murder but I am 10 days postop and only pain I have is from the hip graft.
: My doctor told me 50% also,but I think he knew it would be better. I feel I will be one of the success stories and I have suffered for 15 years refusing to have surgery.
: I researched these message boards till I was blue in the face, scared to death. Trust your doctor and have a positive attitude. Above all FOLLOW your doctors directions to the tee afterwards.
: Hope this helps.
: Elaine
