Hello, I'm a 37 year old male who was injured over the summer at work. I have been through all conservative treatments before considering having surgery, but the inevitable is here. I have been to two different surgeons who have said the same thing in regards to the type of surgery needed to help me. So here I am looking for advise and someone to help guide me through having an ALIF L4-S1 w/posterior screws surgery. It scares me to death but I want my life back!! Any guidance and advise would be greatly appreciated thank you!
