I've been doing pretty good after my ALIF on April 11th. I am having some pains that I didn't have before the surgery. I can't figure out why I'm having them or if it's nerve, muscle or joint pains. What I'd like to find out are the dynamics of what happens after the surgery.
What I mean is does putting the hardware in with the screws and all cause bone pain. When the space is opened and the pressure taken off the nerve will the nerve/nerves wake up and hurt too.
See what I mean? Where can I find all specifics? :?
ALIF April 2011 but it turns out I broke before it barely fused.
