Scheduled for Surgery
I am scheduled for sx, on 11/11/10 at MGH in Boston and I am a wreck. After months of horrific pain in my legs, NOT back, I have had the cortisone, shots, only last about a month, and have 2 opinions on the surgery. I THINK and I go tomorrow, on Thurs, that it is a fusion and decompression, L1 L2
L4 -L5 a spacer in 4-5, I am confused, and absolutely terrified after reading all these posts. I have never had the constant OR bad pain in my back, it is my legs and now my hips anyone else? I don't know if I should wait, try gabapentin???
I have stenosis, spondylolisthesis and some scoliois, the sco, far less concern, yet it is a concern.
I am freaking out........
