I had an ALIF about 3 weeks ago to fuse the L5 S1. I have spondylolisthesis at the L5 S1 to stabilize the vertebra slippage. I am hoping that the ALIF alleviates what has been many years of chronic left leg sit pain, hip soreness, and hamstring soreness. 3 weeks out I still have the sit pain. I saw Dwight Howard (NBA center) recently had a microdisectomy and saw a nerve specialist. Anyone have any recommendations on how to pinpoint the source of this kind of sit pain and how to eliminate it? Anyone have similar symptoms and have the ALIF work to eliminate the pain? If so how long before the nerves healed and the pain went away? I sit on ice packs and hope the ALIF will produce pain relief in the coming weeks. But jury is out. And I am open to thoughts/recs.
