Help me?

Started by IvomneV on 09/13/2016 12:44am

I'm a 30 year old female schedules for a lumbar fusion with instrumentation next week. I have a broken/collapsed disc do I'm having it removed, an implant and the bars to keep it in place. I also have DDD. I'm terrified. Ive read horror stories.
I'm in pain all the time but it's very manageable. More like discomfort than pain. I don't take any medication or pain killers. My mobility and flexibility is great. That's why I don't want the surgery. I'm scared of the post op pain and I don't want my flexibility or mobility to be limited.
Should I have it done and get it over with or wait until I really need it?
