I am scheduled for ALIF and PLIF on July 19, 2019. I am really nervous, but I want my pain to stop. I have felt with lower back, hip, leg pain for years. I had a MRI done in April and found to have an unstable spine. I was told I needed a spinal fusion. When I went to my new doctor I thought it was for just an office consult. I knew right away that he was the doctor I wanted to do my surgery. So my husband and I left after signing the consent and when we got in the car I realized that I should have asked questions. So I need some suggestions on what I should be asking before surgery. Thanks in advanced.
