... Hi Al. I can certainly understand why you are worried. You are very young to have bulging discs. Can I ask what kind of dr. you saw who ordered the MRI? Did he have any suggestions for you?

... XLIF CANNOT be done at the L5-S1 level because there is no access to the area due to the hip being in the way. That is why he suggested the PLIF for you at L5-S1 and the XLIF for the L4-5.
