    I'm sure other members will be along to reply but in the meantime you can go to the search bar at the top and key in "OLIF". Scroll down past the ads and you will find older conversations regarding this surgery for you to read.

    When are you having surgery? We would like for you to join us in that month in Surgery Buddies.

    Take care and please keep us posted.
