well if your doctor is as bad as mine was, nothing! I left him and no one would take my case so I had to get off duragesic 75, actiq 800x2 and 20 mg vicodin by myself. I was hell.

Others took BP, heart rate and temperature. Some add urine samples to be sure you are taking just waht they give you or that you are taking waht htey give you.

Hope this helps.

I had L4-5 XLIF procedure which was awful. I was unable to walk after surgery. I am convinced that I have nerve damage on the side they went in to get to my spine. I am in worst pain after surgery than before surgery. I am now 7 months post op. I can walk now, but not without pain. No one can seem to give me an answer as to why I am having so much pain in this area. My leg is better and my low back does not hurt anymore. Has anyone experienced this problem after XLIF procedure
