Adults living with scoliosis, thoracic stenosis

I have stenosis in 3 places, also a large curve that was never diagnosed and several disks are ruptured or are bone on bone. I was also told one of the bones off the spine is broken. I am almost 72 and pacemaker dependent. A 5 hour robotic surgery was recommended, any feedback?

Who recommended the robotic surgery? I am 83 with degenerative scolosis, degenerative disc disease, 0steoporosis, spinal stenosis, and broke C-1 in my neck 16 years ago! I have a lot of pain, but find that PT helps to some extent. I recently had foot surgery to straighten a hammer toe, and it has healed nicely and no more pain in that foot!!! Don't know if I would be able to recoup from back surgery! Am interested in what you decide
