My pre-op visit
Was today with neurosurgeon. Honestly, I can say I had more information from the nurse at the dentist office when I had my wisdom teeth pulled!
I was told I am having a DLIF with cages, screws and rods, but consent is also for PLIF in case he can't access what he needs to. Okay. So I asked the nurse what level of pain can I expect following the procedure and she told me I will be achy??? Really??? I was given a script for my post op meds which is
Percocet 10/325, 1-2 every 4-6 hours as needed.
