Removal of fusion hardware

Started by Is on 04/22/2018 6:53pm

I recently had spinal hardware removed and not replaced. However after several surgeries I would like to say, if you have broken screws try to have them removed before they migrate and become embedded in your bone causing more pain from the jagged edges irritating nerve endings. Just trying to give everyone a heads up from experience.

Do you find this discussion helpful?
