I had my follow up with ns today, and I'm gonna have ALIF, in couple weeks. I have major degeneration at L5-S1 and found out today the the disc is collapsed. :''( I did ask dr about the ADR but he said that that procedure has not had very good results yet for the lumbar region. I have mixed feelings about doing this but I also realize that I have to get something done. I have been out of work now for 6 weeks trying the conservative approach, and it has not helped one bit, in fact the numbness and tingling are worse as to the point of being a burning sensation now. :O Well, that's all for tonight.
