I'm so sorry you have to go through this i broke apart of my cage last fall and like you I was scared I've been through almost 30 surgeries on my back alone. The first surgery putting the cage in was almost 8 hours long so at first I expected the same but it wasn't half the time they went in took out the broken away part did a little decompression to get all done chips out and replaced the hard ware. I can't feel my left leg at all but I haven't been able too since the accident they say to much damage so I didn't have any increase in pain all this was on the left side . I can't walk and am in a wheelchair, so I don't know what your recovery time will be! I hope this has helped great luck and a fast recovery !!
