Well I will try to make this short but sweet
I have been schuduled for a for vasive surgery and it has only been 11 months since my 3 level fusion back in Dec. 07. My ortho keeped saying my body was rejecting my screws and I couldn't except that answers since I have been in the same pain since before surgery!! I had my L4,L5,S1 fused with hardware and also decompressions.(This was all miniumally invasive )
I finally went to get a 2nd opinion w a spine specialist and he found alot of things that weren't done and that my L4,L5 were bulging again among other things. So on Dec 9th I will be having L3-4 extension w/L4-S1 Revision of fusion done . I am very nervus and scared cause this is a diferrent surgery then before. I forgot to ask alot of questions so can any tell me how long the hospital stay and surgery could possibly be for. I seen him on this past Fri. so I couldn't call the office. I never was asked to give blood with the last one now I have to donate I unit. I do know I have one of the best NS in Wi. and he asures me I will be alot better after! Can someone give some advice on what to expect after the sugery and what they think as well thanks!
I also am getting advice from a lawyer.
