Removal of hardware 14 years post L4 L5 S1 fusion
Had fusion 14 years ago. Have had miserable pain for over three years now. Surgeon would like to remove hardware. He feels it's causing a lot of the pain. I am scheduled to have this done September 4th. I can't be away from my job long as my husband is disabled and I am the only one working. Doc said two weeks I should be able to go back to work. Anyone out there have this done? How long did it take you to recover?
Thanks for any advice.
