And welcome to the CP family! I'm sorry to hear of your daughters' misery. It is so hard when we see our kids in pain. You and I are likely about
the same age.
I'm not that familiar with this type of surgery and what to expect but we have many here who have gone through just what your daughter had. Others will be along soon to help you and her with their experience. One person who had it most recently is a member named Screaming Eagle. He's just been cleared to go back to work. I'll email a couple of folks and see if they can get your some help more quickly. Also I believe PaLady has had back surgery but it's been much longer since hers....plus many more. Some others to watch for are bsjaguar, Whitebeard, Snowbunny, and many others. These folks have been dealing with spine pain and fusions for a varied number of years.
Please invite your daughter to join us too if she would like. This is a very caring and supportive group who does understand what she and you are going through.
Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.
