Well, I am scheduled for surgery next Wednesday and I have been battling the insurance company for a while now about approving my total disc replacement. Well, I have exhausted all of my options. I work for a law firm and they even got involved trying to get it approved. My surgeon has been on the phone with them a lot trying to get them to approve it but no luck. So I am taking that as a sign that I am not meant to have it and now I am looking at an anterior lumbar fusion of L4-5. I went to the hospital for a tour yesterday and the spine center there is very nice but I am absolutely terrified. Any words of wisdom? I could really use them right now.
