You're one above me. Yeah it's a long one but you will do great!
Advice, no matter how much your reflexes tell you to pick something up, don't.

I'm going in for xrays today cuz I instinctively picked up a bicycle on Saturday. Stupid move. I'm paying for it now. Big time.

Hi Lynne,

Wow! That is one of the "longer" fusions I've seen posted, do you know about how long your surgery will take? Dr. Boachie has such an excellent reputation I hope it puts you somewhat at ease knowing you are in good hands. You will be in my prayers for a successful, uncomplicated surgery and recovery.

Renee, Kat,
My heart kind of skipped a beat when I heard T-2. That freaks me out more than the sacrum bit... I mean I have really bad curves but I thought he would'nt go as high as that! The nurse said that's what he has down so far... maybe they won't have to go that high in reality...
sounds like they will use a rib to reduce the hump... Ly :cool:
