About two years ago, my husband had a three level disk fusion. He is still in constant pain. He was determined to go back to his job as a traffic light technician. This involves pulling wire under streets, digging, and other things he should not be doing. The doctor just put him back on TTD for three months. If he is still in pain, he wants to take the metal out of his back.
I wish he had never had the surgery, but there is no going back. I see him getting more and more depressed. I don't know how to help him. Do you think it is wise to take out the metal??
