I see my neurosurgeon on Wednesday for my last appt before surgery. He will be fixing a spinal deformity that has caused stenosis, herniated disk and scoliosis. As for now, I am scheduled for a 360 XLIF where he will remove hardware at L4/L5-S1 that has been there for 19 years. He will then add rods from S1 to L3. Of course, remove bad disc at L3/L4 and clean it up and add plastic disc.
My question for anyone is--what do I need to ask? I have the 39 questions from the site, but I want to know everything.
If you have had experience with this type of surgery or have researched this, please give me any and all advice. I haven't seen much info on 360 XLIFs.
Thanks and Happy Easter!
