Tomorrow I will be going in to have T6/7 and T10/11 fused. I have had a hard time finding anything about this surgery anywhere so I thought I'd make a thread and update when I can on how it went and the recovery.
A little back story, 2017 I got rear ended 2 times. I have had a Cervical disc replacement, and SI joint fusion on both sides. My second car accident is what injured my thoracic spine. This has been the most painful of all my injuries. It has also been the hardest to find treatment. I saw 2 surgeons in my area that didnt want to do the surgery. Then went 3 hours away to a well known teaching hospital. I have been with the new Dr. for over a year preparing for tomorrow. This is a last resort for relief. I know that recovery will be hard and slow. I have done my best to prepare for the next few months. I have lined up for my husband to be off work, my mom to come help for a few weeks, and have 30 dinners all prepped and frozen to be made in the crock pot.
I will update this thread as I am able to.
