Recovery after Spinal Fusion


24532646_1507768384.6917_funddescriptionI am having a spinal fusion surgery done on my lower back at the beginning of November and I am in need of your help.
Due to a PARS defect in my L5-S1 and fractures associated with that, I have been experiencing instability and severe pain for several years now. This year has been especially hard on me due to my sciatic nerve being crushed and the disc supporting my 2 vertebrae has been compromised in the process of therapy and other healing mechanisms. This has sped up the process exponentially of the need for surgery and as a result I have decided to push through and get it done as soon as possible, and since my yearly deductible has been met, this is also the cheaper option.
I do not have short term disability with my job now, and because of my current spine condition, I won't qualify in the upcoming year. I am looking to raise only enough to pay rent in the upcoming months while I am out, and to cover some of the costs of home care and things I might need during rehabilitation. It would mean the world to me if you could spare even 1$ so that I may live without pain for the first time in over 10 years. Thank you.
