Well, my long awaited minimally invasive TLIF at L4-L5 is fast approaching (Monday). I have a question for those who have gone before me. Will I be able to wear over the head tee shirts okay? I just don't wear button down shirts at home, so I have none. I will have my husband at home to help me take them off and put them on, so I'm thinking that will be okay. But I don't want to come to the last minute realization that I won't be able to lift my arms high enough to get them on/off.
