  • I had the Olif procedure done 10 days ago. The first day post surgery was rough but the numbness in my saddle area and pain down my left leg is completely gone. The only pain I'm experiencing is surgical pain at the incision and across my lower back where they removed the discs. I'm so happy I made the decision to do this as I lived with severe lower back and leg pain for over two years.
