Countdown to left L5/S1 TLIF with pedicle screws!! Any advice??
Hi, I'm new here & would like to say how wonderful this site is!
I'm going for the surgery one week this Friday & even though I can't wait to begin the road (albeit a long one) to getting my life back, I am beginning to get a little apprehensive!
I have read & re-read what to expect, what to do in preparation & how not to 'over-do' anything whilst letting the body heal.
I would just like to ask any other chronic pain sufferers if they have any advice. Anyone who has had this type of surgery or is in a similar position to me. Or indeed if anyone has any thoughts on how to help recovery,etc.
All would be greatly appreciated!
THankyou, Heather x
