Hi - Just commenting that after seeing two surgeons for a surgery that failed and that used BAK cages, which they no longer use, that's just it. Live with it. MRI and x-rays are fine. Although the radiologist says partial boney fusion. The surgeons do not see that as an issue, sometimes it does not fuse - the cages provide the stability. Pain is so severe that life is on the couch or in bed. Cannot walk more than 10 feet at a time without resting, cannot drive and do anything other than watch TV or do something on the computer. Even with that pain is severe. Cannot sleep. Cannot lie on right side where the main pain is. Cannot lie on left side because after lying on that side for so many years, the left hip is degenerating. 48 years old. This is my husband and these two surgeons we have seen say there is nothing they can do. He does not want to live if its going to be like this any more.
