has anyone had to have their hardware removed after a fusion?
I had a fusion L3 L4 L5 to S1 in 2007. my pain has remained everyday for almost 3years. I can tell the pain is from the hardware. My surgeon now says I am one of 1% of his patients that needs to have the hardware removed to hopefully help with this continual pain. I have tried every other option to no avail. Has this happened to anyone else? If so I would love to know your story.
