In 2000 I had my spine fused for scoliosis, now I am preparing for the lumbar to be fused, I am 54, and babysit my granddaughters every day. It is killing me that I will not be able to take care of them for 3 months, I hope it is not more than 3 months. I am thinking about having it done Dec 1 or after the first of the year. I am going for a 2nd opinion to appease my daughter mostly, she is a Nurse Practitioner, and I think this is all scary to her, so a 2nd opinion is always a good idea. I am married for 36 yrs. Mother to 2 adults now.
So I am looking for thoughts on how hard the 2nd fusion is. The first one was hard enough!
