Ok, just got back from the Hospital, and did all the paperwork and the blood work in advance. The nurse said they have scheduled a fusion of the L4-L5-S1. So I'm a guessing that means two disk will come out, and be fused in those places.
They also did an EKG 12 point lead, and she said that my heart rate was very slow, a 59, not sure what that means, or does that even sound right to you all. She also told me to never shave off all my hair before a surgery again. Said that if I nicked myself, that can be an entry point for infection.
I'm almost there now. Also the buddy that came to work from being off for 7 to 8 weeks, went home early today, and said he may have come back to work too early. Hydrangea, please take it easy if your reading this, and take care of yourself. Recovery should not be taken lightly on a fusion.
