Has anyone out there had a staged surgery? My surgery will be done in three parts. Surgery #1 will be an open anterior for the lumbar area. Surgery #2 will be thorascopic for the thoracic area (anterior) and surgery #3 will be the posterior fusion. If anyone has needed to have their surgery split up like mine, even if it was two instead of three, I'd love to hear from you and what your experience was like.

I haven't had surgery yet..but that seems rough on you..I have been reasearching for months and I know that they do that surgery all at once....
