Broken Rods-Product reliability?

Started by 102059579996892... on 12/01/2015 2:37pm

My spine was fused from L-3 to S-1, so Titanium rods were installed from T-10 to L-4. L-4 promptly broke due to stress. Operation number 7 to repair it, and extend the rods to S-1 and hip bone. Now the rod on the right side broke, adjacent to a screw. Terrible pain but why keep having surgery if you never get things fixed?
Aren't those rods suspposed to last?
