Lumbar Fusion Instrumentation Removed?

Started by CupCaked on 10/29/2010 3:58pm

Has anybody had this done, especially while having another lumbar level fused at the same time, and why did your surgeon chose to do it?

Hi...I had it done on Sept 2,2010, the reason my Neuro doctor did it was because the screws were in muscle not bone. But once he open me up what he saw on the mylogram, was not all he saw when he open me up. So, I had to have the whole lumbar fusion removed. Now I have RSD which is a condition that is cause my nervous system damage. I had so much scar tissue around the fusion he had to take it out.. But he wanted to replace it but I crashed on . So, now I'm using a four wheel walker the rest of my life....keep in touch....
