I scheduled the following EDIT for late next month
Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (LLIF)
Lumbar - Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF)
LLIF to get to L4-L5 & L4-L3
ALIF to get to L5-SI
im a 44 male..long time weight lifter with Scoliosis, ive been at an avg of 7 (of 10 pain wise) for the past 4 years and have been dealing with this since i was 28. only getting worse. tried everything else. im done...its now or never.
I met with Dr EDIT last month and he made me feel good about the procedure and outcome. very confident dr...which is what you want when your going in for something like this.
Id love to hear from you guys about the procedure, the recovery.....what to expect from the time i go under and the next 6 months to follow..........also anything good or bad about Dr ...much appreciated.
