Upcoming Spinal Fusion L2 through L 4

Started by starnorthwest on 05/23/2018 3:56pm

I would love to hear from anyone who has had the same procedure regarding a spinal fusion. I had a laminectomy and cyst removal a year ago but the spinal cysts have returned and increased in size and number.
my Neurosurgeon is amazing he consulted with his peers at Harbor view Medical Center in Seattle ( I actually have my doctor through the VA) the plan is I have really loose joints and spinal fluid that keeps creating cysts so they want to do a fusion . I must admit the first time went so well I recovered quickly but this surgery scares me to have two rods and 6 screws. Just looking for others experiences as to the recovery process and success of your procedures.

Thank you
