I have a question for anyone who has had a spinal fusion or vertebroplasty.
I have heard from a few people that new fractures adjacent to a fusion or cemented vertebrea can cause new spinal fractures. Have any of you experienced this? If so, how long after the surgery did this happen, and what did the surgeon do to correct this?
Also have any of you had nerve damage after a surgery? I had a Vertebroplasty a week ago and am having new pain, the x-ray came back good, but still in pain!
Thank you in advance!
