Anterior lumbar fusion surgery is where the dr goes in thru ur abdomen instead of ur back to fuse ur spine.

Hi ellro, yes I had severe spondylolisthesis which resulted in severe bilateral foraminal stenosis, which caused significant bilateral root nerve compression at l5/s1. I had a posterior (surgery thru the back) lumbar interbody fusion. Didn't have anterior. Is that what u have to look forward to? Since u mentioned spondylolisthesis, I'm going to assume u have this condition and therefore, the reason for ur surgery? What grade is urs?

Actually ellro, this was my first spine surgery. I just spent the last year researching everything under the sun that had to do with the spine and my issues. As long as ur neurological issues don't become too bad, u should be ok to check out all other options first. Keep me updated and thanks for checking back in:)
