Lumbar surgery

Alright guys here goes…herniated disc, while they are looking they find a spondylothesis (i think that is what they call it)and another cracked vertebrae. My workouts have slowly tapered to nothing after about a year now as my workouts shortened over time due to increasing pain. I am having surgery the 28th of oct. fusion and screws to shore things up.I am 42, was in great shape with four years of hard earned muscle, and now wasting because of this shit. ANYONE out there been through anything remotely close to this ? Thanks, Rich
