Spianl Fusion hardware removal..
At age 15 all my problems started, I had a lamanectomy (sp) and another at age 17. At age 21 after dealing with a bunch of doctors that wouldn't do anything and going to a doctor an hour away from home I had L4-S1 fused. I was fine for about a year and half and then it all started again. I have nerve damage in my left leg and sciatica going down both legs. I have done physical therapy, ESI and now on pain meds. I'm a nurse and had to quit my job because of this pain, I can barely walk, sit or even lay down. I was wondering if anyone had the same problems and got there hardware out cause of it and if it has helped. I'm trying to research before I go to the doctor cause I'm sick of it all.
