I had been having second thoughts about having my ALIF L4-L5 fusion done so soon. I didn't think my pain was as bad as some others I had read about. I was also worried about the amount of down time I was going to have.
Well I went on a little vacation last week and I was very active. I was as active as I would like to be if I didn't have back problems. Well, there is no way I can carry on any kind of a normal life with my back the way it is. I was (and still am) in a lot of pain from just trying to be normal.
So my surgery is this monday (11th) and I sure hope it fixes things 8}
ALIF April 2011 but it turns out I broke before it barely fused.
