Good luck with the tests Melissa. You are being well looked after. I know it's not going to be easy with a fully fused spine and now an anterior incision, but you know how things improve with time. Keep posting, we are keen to know how you're going and the interraction will help pass the time, and we all know patience is a virtue! I hope they can get your anterior pain under control.
