I recently had ALIF on the L5 S1 on march 12th trying to find others that's had this surgery to see recovery time. After a yr dealing with pain and hurting work and other things I had ALIF surgery. X-rays April 26th didnt show anything on fusion I go back june 6th for another X-rays. Off all pain meds at wk 6 but I still have pain in that area not like it was but pain. Wk 5 thought there was something loose but X-rays didnt show anything loose.Stomach incision healed good. I have pain not like was but still pain in my lower back mainly sitting on laying on my back. I'm 35 yrs
Will this get better?
How long have it took others to fuse?
Dr didn't have me wear a brace any others not wearing a brace?
Dr also didn't feel like in did PT any others No PT?
