I have a stupid question....what's the difference between anterior and posterior? My orders say I'm having "posterior lumbar interbody fusion/postlateral fusion". I will be asking him what that means on Monday, I just thought I would see if you know.
Fortunately for me, my husband is really good natured. He just takes it all in stride. And he teases me as often as he can. When I told him he would have to stay in the waiting room during my surgery just in case anything happens, he said "didn't I already sign that paper?" I asked what paper and he said the one that says no life support. I told him he could go away and I would let my mommy stay!!
Big brat, anyway.
I'm getting nervous about this afternoon. I have to go up and be fitted for my brace. Sounds like about as much fun as a root canal!!
