It's been a while since I have been here. I had surgery about a year and a half ago. l4-s1 posterior fusion. This was done min invasively. I had serious complications and had to go back in for surgery 3 weeks later re-opened, have one rod and three screws taken out and replaced. Needless to say it was a very long recovery. The fusion did not take and I have been living in just as much if not more pain since. I sought out multiple opinions from majors medical centers and finally found a doctor that I feel I can trust. I will be have a revision in November but this time he will be opening me all the way up so that he can see what is going on take out and replace the hardware. He is using BMP as like before and I will be wearing a bone stimulator- I did not use this before.
So this is me in a nut shell. It is nice to still see some familiar name but I wish I was not at this point again!
Hi to all and I hope you are all having a day where your pain can be managed.
