I had a multi-level spinal fusion L-4, L-5 ,S-1, 10 months ago . I am pain free and do not take any pain medication. I also am back to work performing tile installations. So if anybody wants some positive feedback please contact me

Hi ~ I am so glad to read your post. I am going soon for an Anterior Lumbar Discectomy & fusion. They will work on L 3&4 & 4& 5. I need to ask about after your surgery. How was it to sleep and how was the pain? Was it hard to get up off your bed? They told me they have to go in through my front and move everything over to the side. I was told it is going to be alot of healing not like my fusion in my neck which was C 3 & 4. I can deal with pain but really nervous on this one. you are so lucky to be pain free. Please write back
