Hello all. I am brand new to this site and grateful for the information I have found here. I am scheduled for BTHR on March 11. I'm only 56 but very active at the gym and on the golf course so my surgeon recommends both at once. I'm very, very nervous and hope I don't regret this decision, but the pain has reached the point that I can no longer live the life I have to live. A few questions for anyone kind enough to help: 1) The operation will be from the front. How has your experience been with this technique? 2) I will have a spinal instead of general anesthesia. Any input? and 3) Is the advantage of one rehab worth the increase in pain and rehab time involved with two separate procedures? Thanks so much for any input.
