L5-S1 Revision ALIF Tomorrow Morning

Please pray that all will go well! I will keep in touch after and let you all know how I am doing.



  • Can you tell me what sort of surgery you had the first time that required you to need a revision ? And what happened with it that didn't work?

    I had a :
    TLIF Nov-2013
    XLIF revision Nov-2014 (with a bonus surgery to fix my illiac vein),
    and now am facing yet ANOTHER revision since my body seems to REFUSE to grow bone and fuse. . .

    Glad you are doing well, I lived with bad pain for 6 years before I started down the surgery road. . . at this point I'm not sure it's worth it since my body truly does not work right . . .

    Just got home and everything went well. I'll give more details when I'm feeling better.

    The front belly area is crazy painful!!

    Praise God and thanks for the thoughts and prayers everyone.
  • Oh Man, I am so afraid now of the abdominal incision!!!! Surgery in 14 days. Hope they give me the good meds.
