I was just nussed on 1/29 by Dr Jaroszewski and wanted to share my experience. I have to say I was VERY nervous going into this. Knowing what I know now I would not have shed a bead of sweat over it. I was a 4.63, Dr J & team fixed that with 3 bars and 2 1/2 hours on the table. I went with the On-Q Pain busters over the Epidural, and it was all good (not to mention safer).
All things considered I feel fantastic. I have a full range of movement with no pain, only mild discomfort. I can lift weight under 10 lbs without pain. At this point my breathing is deep enough that I'm not winded by daily activities. I even got myself to the gym today for some cardio. I spent 1/2 hour on the elliptical keeping my heart rate around 100 BPM.
I don't know if I'm extremely lucky, have a high pain threshold, had/have good pain management, had a master surgeon, or (most likely) some combination there of, but I'm very happy I did the surgery and every day it gets better.
