On December 10, I had a six hour procedure to fuse L4 - 5 - S1 (ALIF) and to insert instrumentation via a minimally invasive technique on the posterior side. I am hugely thankful that the procedure is now done and I can't believe that it is 10 days out
What I wonder is what lies ahead :B . How did you feel at two weeks ... how long could you sit, stand ... how was sleep? What about 4 weeks ... improvements in mobility, tolerance for sitting, walking ? Six weeks?
I know that I have quite a journey ahead of me and am so thankful that the surgery that I inched my way towards for 10 months (injection after injection, MRI's, Xrays, horrible discograms) is now complete.
Any perspective you can share would be great!
