I'm new here. I've been dealing with back pain for 5 years. I have undergone all non-surgical treatments and a laminectomy in 2008. I was pain free for a year and then the pain returned.
I am scheduled for XLIF on Nov 11, 2013. I am not nervous at all. I am ready to be pain free and become active again. I have been told I will spend 2 nights in the hospital.
I am so glad I found this forum. The information found here is priceless.
