my surgery is scheduled for December 21st!

T2 to L1 is that a lot?


Anyone else going in around that date?

Wishing you the very best outcome LaShawn. Do let us know how you go and in the meantime, ask as many questions as you want. Knowledge is power! ;)

It's a long fusion but not the longest on this forum. You'll retain some flexability having the lower vetebra left unfused.

Hi there, I am scheduled for surgery Dec 13th with Dr. Lenke in Saint Louis, MO. I am being fused T-3 to L-4. Ya our fusions are long ones. I'm sure your are getting nervous, I know I am. What are your curvatures? Are you in a lot of pain? Mine are T-68 and L-80. I am in a fair amount of pain everyday, some days are better some are worse. I just know it's time to take care of this!

i am T36 with chronic pain all day even with Oxy. I have rib and hip pain. i end up in the hospital a few times a month for uncontrolable pain. I am not sure of my degree of my lower curve.

my days and nights are scheduled around my pain so i am ready to do this:)
