It couldn't have happened at a worse time, since I am being told that I must have that third surgery in the near future. My spinal canal has narrowed to the width of a sharpened pencil lead tip, according to the surgeon I've consulted with. He is talking a major 4-6 level either anterior , then lateral fusion, or posterior then anterior surgery for kyphosis, severe canal and foraminal decompression as well as an anterior and posterior spondylolysthesis correction (l3-4, and l5-s1), and a facet fracture.....so it is going to be extremely painful and traveling any distance is not going to be an option.
He is wavering between starting at l2- down to s1, possibly s2, or l3-s2, although at the last appointment he was leaning more toward l2 as the starting point...sigh this is going to be interesting.
