Hello everybody I am one week out after having an ALIF on limbar 3/4 I am not sure what to expect as far as recovery and what I should be doing at this point I find that I’m not needing a walker or cane when doing the stairs. I do still feel symptomatic as I was when I had surgery sometimes even a little worse in my ankle that had numbness and tingling just wondering at what point in your recovery did you feel like You were feeling a bit more like yourself. I am in a brace for three months I am a nurse and I don’t know how that’s going to work as far as going back to work I work 3 13 hour shifts a week and travel an hour to and from my job hope that your recovery is going well in any insight would be helpful thank you. I also have days that I feel like all that I want to do is sleep. I have stopped the Percocet and I’m taking Tylenol for pain which really doesn’t cut it completely
