Need info on TLIF minimally invasive pre- and post-op
I will be having minimally invasive TLIF on L2 and L3 in a few weeks. Surgeon says I will overnight at the surgical center and meet with him the next day, then be discharged.
I haven't had a visit yet with him to finalize all details.
What can I expect with respect to pre-op procedure? Post-op?
I live alone so will I need someone to assist me during recovery? Will I need to do physical therapy?
I have no info yet on how long I should expect to be out of work, so if you could help me out here, I would be very grateful.
Thanks in advance to everyone who takes the time to respond.
