Surgery Scheduled !!

Well I finally got my date and supposedly my insurance has signed off on everything. This Tuesday the 1st.

PLIF on L4-L5 with cages, rods and BMP.

I am a little nervous but I can tell you this board has been so helpful in learning and being prepared. And the positive post have been great for my confidence. I want to thank everyone on here, there are just too many to list by name. really need to try to get that post on successful stories. When I come back I want to post there. I'm going in with the best attutude I can.

Thanks again to everyone......

Re: Surgery Scheduled !!

good luck to you! I hope all goes well and you are home as soon as you can be and doing well. I will try and get that soon-I think I just start a thread and then let the mod know. I will do that today-gotta figure out good wording!

Best of luck to both of you. I will keep you both in my prayers. Let us know how you are doing when you are feeling up to it.
And remember it's normal to be nervous before, but there are a lot of people on here that will tell you that it's not nearly as bad as you imagine it will be.
Best wishes,
