What happened to my back fusion ?
Hello all .. I am new here .. I live with chronic back pain ... in the past I have a ruptured disc in 1976 .. had surgery then ... in 1988 I had a fusion at L5 .. Didn't help much and have been doing pain management since 1989 ... The pain of course get worse at the years have gone by .. had a MRI a month ago and they said there was no fusion and asked if I had a disc removed ... I was taken aback because I had a fusion .. Has the happened to anyone else .. is the common that in time it just goes away after 28 years ? .. Any feedback one be so welcomed .. thank you so much .
