I am awaiting insurance approval for a single level ALIF with screws and laminectomy. I am single and live alone with no significant other just my 3 dogs (spaniel, doxie, and pit bull). I really don't want to board (way way too expensive) them but I can probably talk family & friends into taking them for at least a little while. I also don't think I can do this without my doxie but I know I won't be able to handle my pit bull. She is just way too strong. Any advise or experiences?
Single level L5/S1 360 fusion with 6 screws and a rod (10/29/12)
Diagnosis: Grade 1-2 spondylolithesis, Pars Defect, L5/S1 disc tear anterior and posterior, DDD, spinal stenosis
