Hi All: I just wondered if any of you who have already had surgery or are waiting to have surgery have *ever* heard that after a PLIF with cages and fusion *non iliac crest* harvestation, have been told that you will get out of the hospital in ONE day? To me this seems incredibly, but I have a family member that is being told that and am wondering if the dr is just trying to eliminate the worry that comes with the number of days they ususally tell you.
Let me know if you have a chance. I suppose it's possible, but I'm having a really hard time wrapping my mind around *this one* for obvious reasons. The shortest amount of time I was in was 7 days (3 yrs ago) and the longest (many years ago) was 6 weeks.
Again sending good wishes to all getting ready to have the surgery and to those who just recently had it!!!! To Yvette's daughter, thanks for keeping us updated, and I hope her pain level isn't too bad. Has she made any comments on the pain in particular, because it may help with my above question.
