I had surgery in June 2011. Pedicle screws, peek cage, and flex rods were used. In December I had my 3rd set of exrays and CT scan. They found 3 screws broken and the cage collapsed. The surgeon has had me wait to see if it would finish fusing, but now it is April 2012 and I have still more increased pain and the exrays and MRI that was done in early April showed that my back is worse than when the first surgery was done. He said that I need to have another surgery and I am a little aprehensive. Anyone have any advise?
I am also a bit concerned due to the money situation of 2 surgeries of this magnatude within a year. HELP!!!
Any feedback would be appreciated!!
