Hello I'm 53yo with 18years LBP/Sciatica, can only sit/stand/walk for short periods and limited mobility. Had L5/S1 decompression, micro-d, due to have ALIF in October - (terrified). Live in Buckinghamshire UK. After so long I have adjusted to my lifestyle, it was hard at first, but life can be good sometimes - have a very supportive wife and son.
After many years of poor diagnosis and treatment I got a referral to the RNOH in Stanmore (UK) and I am due to have an ALIF in October. It's a bit daunting but offers me some hope. I've come on this board to find out as much as I can about ALIF and pre/post op advice - and of course to be of any help I can to my fellow back sufferers.
53yrs LBP/sciatica for 18yrs - severely dibilitating.
L5/S1 bilateral decompression, unhelpful.
L5/S1 micro-d unhelpful.
