Re: xlif for L4-L5 plif for L5-S1
Did you see more than one spine surgeon?
Are you aware of anything "unusual" with your lower lumbar area? I just can't figure out why they would want to do two surgeries. It will make recovery more difficult and obviously I am not a doctor, but I just can't figure out why they would do this. While it is common to do a ALIF and PLIF, it is done for specific reasons that a PLIF and TLIF would not accomplish. Sorry to keep mentioning this, but it is just so odd and I am really curious to know their reasoning.
