I need to have a two level (L4 - S1) fusion. We haven't figured out whether it will be ALIF, TLIF or a combination of XLIF and AxialIF. I am on my own and need to figure out what sort of assistance I will need post op. I realize the procedure will dictate that a bit, but just trying to get an idea so I can plan for importing family and close friends for assistance. Based on what I have read on this forum nothing seems to go as planned. I would appreciate some thoughts as to what sort of assistance I will need to plan for, up thru 3 months post op..
