I had a scheduled surgery on my lower back on December 7. Everything went well and I was home but resting mostly because it was a major surgery. Then abruptly problems. I had a 2nd surgery on the 20th. That went well. Everything looked great. I went home. And was back in the hospital the next day. Surgeon did a bedside procedure in my hospital room.
