Spondylolisthesis is the forward slippage of one vertabrae on another.

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:)
