I would be happy to share about my post surgery experiences what the surgery is like etc please e-mail me I want to help.....HUGS CHRISSY :)
Hi I am Susan and would love to hear anything about surgery, post surgery and recovery, pain, mobility, etc. My surgeon has a great reputation but he has been very vague with me about details.
I have much pain in my legs and now some in my arms and hands too. Please let me know anything about this surgery. I am concerned.
Thanks in advance
