Ok I'm still a bit in shock from the whole idea of surgery. Never really expected to be doing this again - especially so soon.
Yesterday the PM doc said that the fusion would be so much harder than the microD since I would have hardware. I started thinking about that and I will ask lots of questions at my next surgeon appt.
But what I am wondering is can they do a fusion without the hardware? Mine is a rare spot to have surgery so I don't expect alot of answers. I was just wondering because the rest of the spine at this point is attached to the rib cage so I wonder if they can do the fusion without any hardware.
