Well I met with all the Dr's at pre-op. I'm scheduled to have PLIF with all hardware removed and replaced. Hoping this time it will work. The Dr is running test to see if I have an infection due to the fact of the non union!
Not sure what to expect from a PLIF. The last surgery was a 360. Hoping this is easier!
