Hey everyone. I am scheduled for ALIF at 2 levels L4/L5, L5/S1 in 2 weeks. I am very nervous. I don't really know what to expect. I would appreciate any information that you could give me.
I have had previous surgery on Thoracic. I was involved in car accident and had a fracture at T-8. 6 months following accident I had T-8 removed and replace with synthetic vert. and fusion from T-5 to T-10. 6 months follow surgery had another surgery to remove hardware. Surgeon told me that ALIF would not be nearly as intense as 1st surgery.
So any info or words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for the help
