I had a spinal fusion in 2008 finally agreed to have the metal taking out April 30th this year
don't be afraid to get the metal taken out when the spinal fusion is complete. I had so much pain in my legs and my back I spent most of my time crying. April 30th I finally manned up and got some metal taking out it's like a miracle my legs barely hurt and my back really hurts. I highly recommend getting the metal out as soon as possible when your spinal fusion just complete.
