Please help!!! Considering Axialif for L5-S1, out patient surgery what to expect
I am strongly leaning towards Axialif surgery for L5-S1, what can I expect for after the surgery... what do I need.... how long will I be "laying around' and Eating bon-bons.
My doctor will be doing this as out-patient ( no overnight stay in the hospital) and going thru the back.
Is it normal to have NO hospital stay.
Also my doctor says that sometime in the near future (3-5 years) I will have to address L4-5. Should I wait or have a two level fusion at this time.
Has anyone had any experience with the Axialif surgery for the L5-S1 and if so what are your thoughts did you any special equipment, stay over night in hospital, how long were you down. Anything you can tell me would be a help.
Thanks to all who read this and to all that responds.
