ALIF and PLF surgery

I am new to this sight. My name is Jennifer. I am from Massachusetts. I am having an ALIF and PLF next week! I am a WRECK! I am starting to have anxiety over the surgery itself and more so the RECOVERY! I amNOT good at sitting still. Has anyone here had this type of surgery? I would love to connect with someone who can tell me from a patients point of view what to expect! Thanks,,
Jennifer Ingham


  • Hey Jennifer, sorry nobody has responded espeacially before your surgery as it seems youve probably have had it unless it was delayed. Regardless I hope it went well and certain that others would have greeted you in the new member page here as the mods are really good at greeting new folks.
    If you are still here or find this response feel free to PM me or even give it another shot on the new member page. Id be glad to assist in anyway.
    Best wishes
