Many Spine-Health members have had more than one surgery. In some cases it was a matter of a failed surgery, failed fusion or some other mishap.
But for many patients, you have to look to see WHY that patient needed to have additional surgeries.
Some may have been self induced By not adhering to the restrictions and limitations that they were suppose to follow.
Others may have need additional surgeries do to trauma, and yet there are those that needed surgery because of some genetic or environmental situation.
We can't predicate traumas, we may have difficult times avoiding genetic situations, but I believe that it is every spinal patients hands to ensure the right things are done daily to avoid that next surgery.
It will be interesting to hear how different members approach this.
