Real quick, as I am just 24 hours post-op:
Doing great. Been up and walking 4 times.
Have had lots of nausea problems, but the pain right now is less than what I was living with on a daily basis before the surgery.
They did do a 2 level fusion, just as planned. The Dr. said that it was just as bad as we thought, but not worse. The next level up is very likely going to be a problem in the future, but for now he just did the 2 levels.
Dr. said that I'll be in here for 4 to 5 days.
Oops, spoke too soon. Just got my Oxygen levels checked, I'm low, so now I have to go back on it. I'd been off it all day.
Too bad I don't have my camera and cord, I could post a photo of my view. I think you all might be able to manage a visual though - picture hospital ceiling and walls from flat on your back :)
Hugs all, I'll be up and running soon I'm sure!
