Hello my name is Cindy and I'm an alcoholic. Whoops, wrong forum. Hey moderators, just kidding.
I have a previous T2 to L3 L rod fusion that has served me well for over 30 years, however, now L4 through S1 are, in medical terminology, a mess. I've got curves and twists that would rival the scariest roller coaster and the stenosis, oh don't get me started, I've got blockage that only a plumber's snake could clear. Not to mention my lumbago. But enough about the problem.
The problem is the solution sounds like a big problem. They're going to skewer me like a frog. What brave person has done this before and are you living to tell the story? Please, I want to hear the good, the bad and the ugly.
