L4-L5 Lumbar Fusion with instrumentation
I am I guess looking for some positive enforcement on my decision to have Surgery which is schedule for February 23, 2011. The pain in my leg and hip is so bad on a scale of 1-10 at times it hits like a 12!!! The back in my lower back is not bad, i have lived with that for year, I have a degenerated disc, a fractured vertabre, and spondyloisthesis to go with all that. I am just hoping I am making the right decision!! I am 37 years old, with 3 great kids, ages 11, 9, and my little princess who is 3!! I will be honest, i am scared, i read most of these posting but try to only hang on to the positive ones!!! I wish they all were positive!!! The hardest thing for me to grasp is the recovery time, I own my own landscaping company where i enjoyed doing 50 percent of the work, but i know that aint happening for awhile, so supervising from my truck will be the new thing for me!!!
