Had fluid built up twice and have been just told tht my recent mri is showing tht I'm not fusing and my hardware has become loose and I'll need yet another surgery. Called a ALIF L5 S1 and they will have too go threw my stomach

Has this happened to anyone else out there ..why is my hardware loose and why do I keep getting fluid on my spine HELP PLZ
