ALIF, PLIF L4,L5, L5,S1 yesterday

Less than 24 hours out and feeling better and walking taller already! Everyone's experience is likely different but so far I am in less pain than before the surgery. There is some incision pain but manageable....walking on walker and going home this afternoon.
Optimistic that this was definitely the right move after trying every conservative treatment required by insurance over the last year and a half. Those who are considering or have a major procedure scheduled know that they do work!


  • Just don't overdue. Remember....no bending, lifting, twisting.
    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

    I had TLIF and XLIF L-S1 on 7/8 and am doing well. Walk walk walk, but don't over do it!
