puzzled....L5/S1 bone growth disappeared after two years....anyone else?
had a L5/S1 fusion that failed.
had a x-ray in 2012 this was the six month point.
that showed new bone growth all around the L5 and pelvis.
had a bad fall 7 days ago 2014 and the new x-ray shocked me.
all the bright white new bone or calcium that was all around it is all gone. WHERE DID IT GO?
I took calcium supplements for two years after the surgery.
and was told to stop taking them because it didn't fuse.
has this happened to anyone else?
open to opinions.
now I know I'm definitely not fused now!
