I had spinal fusion in december 2009. I had a good day or 2 a few months after PT but since then I am miserable. Dr says all X-rays look great and I am healed. The only thing they say is maybe my body is not tolerating the rods and screws they stuck in me. I have to wait until December to have them removed. I cant work, cant collect disability and do not know what to do.I hurt more now than before my surgery.
