Hi everyone. I am scheduled to have ALIF surgery on July 13. I am a little anxious about the pain and recovery afterwards. Especially since I am ver overweight. (about 100lbs overweight) I had started WW's and had lost about 30 lbs but since hurting my back and not being very mobile, I haven't been able to lose much more.
I know this is a kind of personal question...but has anyone who is significantly overweight had the surgery and if so how was your outcome. I can not live like this any more and I am looking forward to what will hopefully be a new start on life in about 3 weeks. I am mostly worried about my physical condition hindering the surgery and/or recovery.
Any advise or experiences with this surgery would be greatly appreciated.
I wish everyone who has had/will have surgery, a quick recovery.
