7/14 L5-S1 ALIF.
Relieved about 60% of my pain.
I started working from home (email/phone) on day 4 after surgery. I got to drive on day 13, and I am officially going back to the office after 2.5 weeks. I could have done it at exactly 2 weeks, but I was waiting for my first check-up. I am not trying to push the envelope, I am tired of being at home. I just need to take it easy at work. Obviously, I couldn't go back if any lifting was involved...not ready for that.
I had a easy recovery, so thankful for that. I am finally sleeping through the night, that was the hardest part.
I will probably be on pain pills for a while as we wait and see on the rest of my back and butt pain.
