On April 29th I am getting a ALIF 2 level fusion on my L4/L5/S1. The pain has been iff and in since 2007, butbthis past May I fell down Subway Steps, and that pushed everything pain wise over the edge for me. Alternative treatments for Pain have all failed. I tried Physical Therepy, Block Injections, but all efforts to alieviate pain has been unsucessfull. I have read countless hours of stories, watched youtube video's, and am starting to realize that no recovery is the same. I see one thing in common with all stories is to WALK, WALK, WALK. If there was one piece of advice that you can give me, what would it be?
