My first post and i just want to share my experience here. I have bilateral spondylolysis and grade 1 spondylolisthesis in L5 S1, moderate left paracentral disc protrusiona and severe left side foraminal stenosis all in L5 S1. I have been dealing with this pain for almost 9 months. I am in severe pain and limping and cant even get a good night sleep due to pain. I can only sleep in my right side in a crouch position. My left leg is shooting pain pain all over, ankle, thigh, shin, and the unbearable pain like a dull knife in my lower buttocks all day.
I just had my ALIF and Laminectomy three days ago and i'm glad i did it. No more pain and tingling and i can walk straight now unlike before i was hunch on left side. The only thing i have to deal now is recovery from two incisions front and back. I'm home now and i walked from time to time Pain Free. I guess my surgery is succesfull and i'm glad i did it. i still have to deal with the pain of recovering and constipation i have after surgery :-)
