Just scheduled ALIF L4/L5 L5/S1 for February 12 and I'm terrified. I'll admit it, I'm a complete wus when it comes to pain and medical procedures. Also realized that its the unknown and anticipation that is the worst. I'm expecting this to be really painful and not going to be fun. The neurosurgeon I decided to use definitely calmed some of my fears but easier said than done. Any words of wisdom from the experienced?
