  • Hi,
    I know how you feel too, as it seems like it can take a while to get answers sometimes, but then again, I tell myself there are a lot of people on this board and lots of posts to look at so be patient if possible. I've just been informed of my surgery date for an ALIF. I'm scared but am also trying to be positive too. Best of luck to you in your recovery.
