Second ACDF

Started by chilinpepper08 on 07/20/2011 2:01pm

I am scheduled to have another ACDF on Friday, back in 2004 I had C5-7 fused and now I am having to have C4 added to the fusion. My doctor is going to take out the old hardware and replace it with new hardware. Has anyone had hardware removed after 7 year? Does it cause a longer recovery? Is the pain worse. My doctor was hoping to just add to my current fusion but the CT scan indicated that the hardware has to be removed. Any comments would greatly be appreciated. Thanks, Kim
