I have had two posterior surgeons -- the first was at L4-L5 done with a cage...and the second which added on L3-L4 and L5-S1 was done without cages, leaving the discs in place. This is the old way that fusion was always done, with the bone graft just laid in along the "gutter." My guess would be it is done the same way with the TLIF.

You should be fine. Just be very careful about not pushing and doing too much too soon. It is better to avoid causing a nerve flare than to deal with it after the fact.
