I had ALIF on 2/7/18. Overall things are going well. I would say so far this has been life changing. My presurgery pain is gone, I walk 3-4 miles every other day, I can drive, and am off all narcotic pain meds (take Tylenol occasionally). I am still off of work and my company approved 7 weeks off paid. I am considering going back early, only because I really like my work. I have a desk job, so no BLT won't be an issue. The only issue I see is I am exhausted. I normally sleep 6-7 hours and take one nap on the weekend. Since my surgery I sleep 8-9 hours and nap 2-3 hours everyday. Some days I feel more energized and skip my nap and the next day sleep even more. Is this normal after ALIF? How long does it last? I was not getting great sleep before surgery due to my pain levels and now and sleeping like a rock.
