Hi, I just joined forum finally & will post later, as I have an appt. now, but the short version is that I am now 6 months postop from a successful L2-S1 PLIF fusion. Thanks to my supersurgeon am almost pain-free and working on my new lifestyle/range of motion. I was not a good candidate for ADR & had mitigating financial/insurance circumstances, so I chose a surgeon stateside who does latest/newest procedures (even trialed an ADR). I am very happy with my outcome & will be glad to respond to questions about how I feel about my fusion. Bye for now.
