Has anyone had a XLIF surgery. I have had many comment to my questions and I thank everyone. But no one has mentioned having this type of fusion surgery. I wanted to tell everyone that it's day 13 and I woke up and did not have any pain at all!!!! I am so amazed how well this has gone. When I think about the two years of agony I went through with that other fusion, I get so mad. The first doctor I had, did a horrible job. I had the same kind of disc issues as I did before this second surgery. That was an anterior fusion. The doctor sliced one of my ureters in half and did not place one of the screws in properly. If anyone needs a fusion, the XLIF is the way to go!!!! Thank you everyone for your advice and listening to me vent.
Have a good day
