I had a spinal fusion in march of 2008 of the l5-s1.
My pain has double since the surgery, the doc is rather mystified as to the cause and now thinks that it may be a reaction to the hardware, he said there was know why to tell if it is a reaction besides removing and seening if there is a changing has anyone experienced this..
I am very intimadated by the thought of a another surgery since the first was so bad.


  • There are a number of people on the board who have had their hardware removed. Just type in "hardware removal" in the search box and you will find many threads pertaining to this topic.

    I believe there is some kind of a block they can do to see whether it is the hardware that is causing the problem. This can be done prior to having the actual surgery to remove it.
