spinal surgery Sept. 19th. Scared to death.
I am 70 and in good health. Dr. says surgery only option left for my spondy condition. I will be in the hospital several days, then move to a skilled nursing facility within the hospital for as long as I like. Dr. said he will operate on back and also go through my stomach area, around the intestines. How much pain am I in for? Tell me about your experience. Any advice or tips?
