| | Info on L1, L2 Fusion
A post from milleman on the Spinal Cord Disorder healthboards, just wondering if anyone could help him as there have been no replies.
Hi, Looking for advice please....
Due to a motorbike accident last June i managed to crush the L1 Vertebrae. Just had an MRI Scan and more X-rays which lead my first surgeon to recommend Fusing L1 to L2, am due to visit another neurosurgeon in two weeks for his opinion.
Quite frankly his description of the operation scared the pants off me, 9 Hours with possible complications such as ruptured diaphram and possibility of damage to major blood vessels.
Has anyone else had this done?, any advice greatly appreciated.
