Hello, I'd like to see if anyone on this site would have any information
in regard to a L4/L5 XLIF and a L5/S1 Axialif double fusion surgery. After 15 months of enduring the
pain associated with torn discs in these areas, leg numbness and my inability to hold
my 15 month old daughter anmung many other reasons, I think I have decided to undergo the surgery. The onset of my symptoms began 15 months ago 3 days after the birth of my daughter. I am a 35 year old who has undergone 5 injections, MRI's, CT's and a discograph. The diagnosis is Degenerative Disc Disease and torn annulus fibrous in these areas. The NS has recomended this type of surgery. Any thoughts
concerning these procedures. If you have had them done would you do it agian?
Recovery time? Any other advice? Any thing would be greatly appreciated!
