We have been given the official word that my 12 yo son's surgery will be Dec 22nd. They will fuse T4 - L2. Could someone help me understand what they mean by posterior? We were told he will only be in the hospital for 4 days and when he returns he will be fine with stairs so no need to put his bed downstairs. And no concerns as far as his bed being pretty low to the ground. Can someone share what their personal experience was with stairs and the height of their bed? His really is low, mine might require a step stool for him.
Dr. Hanson will perform the surgery at Texas Children's Hospital. We go for pre-admission/blood work the Wednesday before. Waiting on orders to be sent to Gulf Coast Blood Bank so we can donate blood for him. Waiting on counselor at school to let us know what is required from doctor's office for homebound services after surgery. It seems very real to me now, but he seems to be fine. He said he's had enough with the doctor visits and information. He knows all he wants and would prefer not hearing any more. Doc spoke to him and asked if he had any questions/concerns...he let him know he had none and was just ready to get on with the surgery already.
