Morning y'all! Hey, 13 months after my L5-S1 fusion surgery, I'm found to have a non-union (pseudoarthrosis) at the surgery site. So, I guess I'll be going in for repairs. My question this morning is, should I go back with the surgeon who originally did the surgery or a different NS. My insurance will pay either way and I have located doc's who will do salvage surgeries.
This original surgery didn't work out right, but I don't know how much of that was the surgeon. I'm not a high risk pt, I am not obese, no nicotine or any other risk factors. Maybe it was just bad luck or genetics that the bones didn't fuse?
Would I gain or lose anything by getting a new doctor? Any input will be greatly appreciated!
