I was shocked to find after my Discogram that my doctor recommends a 3 level fusion. He's going to do a minimally invasive OLIF with BMP from the left side. Then flip me over and go though the back to insert rods and screws. Has anyone had this type of surgery? Needless to say, I'm scared to death about the recovery.
Artificial disc at L5S1 for 10 years. Had 3 Level lumbar fusion and Laminectomy on Sept 27, 2013. It was an OLIF (Oblique Lumbar Interbody Fusion) with cages, BMP, rods & screws. Norco, Plaquenil
