Hi all
I am new to the group. I had a min tilf at L3/4 3 weeks ago. I feel I am doing pretty well but still don't have a great comfort level for sitting. I also still have some pain issues. What should I expect at this stage?


  • I haven't had surgery but hope you're starting to feel better at his point in your healing. I know it's slow and steady with your recovery time. I hope someone who's had surgery will come along and help. Take care. Charry
    DDD of lumbar spine with sciatica to left hip,leg and foot. L4-L5 posterior disc bulge with prominent facets, L5-S1 prominent facets with a posterior osteocartilaginous bar. Mild bilateral foraminal narrowing c-spine c4-c7 RN
  • I had PLIF 2 level in Dec 08 and I can tell you this, my next one is suppose to be min invasive too. It is still a fusion and major surgery. I was told not to sit except to eat or bathroom for the first 3 months and very limited after that. So just give it time and try to keep the stress of sitting off your spine. Good Luck.
