removal of hardware after fusions are healed
I have had multi-level spinal fusions (c-2 > t-2, with hardware. After 18 months since the last surg., I am still in considerable pain, still on pain meds., still get constant spasms, etc. Doc wants to remove all the hardware now. He thinks that it has loosened, & I don't need it any more. Has anyone experienced this. How did it work out for ya????
