  • I'm actually only a little over one month out of ALIF of my L5-S1 surgery and i found 2 hernia one at each end of the incision which hurt like crazy. I always have to hold the area for some reason. My Dr. said it happens sometimes when they have to go through the stomach and i shouldn't be worried about it unless it gets bigger! Do keep us updated and the Best of luck to you.
