Has anyone had a
Back fusion that didn't take? I have had 4 back surgeries in four years. First a Laminectomy/ micro diskectomy that FAILED. Then a Fusion on l5-s1. Second surgery was l3 & l4 then a year later l2. Thought I was done with back surgeries forever. Then I started complaining of low back pain / hip pain so I just saw the Top Hip surgeon in Boston. Much to my surprise it's not my hips but my back ? It turns out that NONE of my fused levels ever fused so he wants to take Everything out and start over?( I can't even imagine doing this one) and to top it all off I've been waiting for a date to get a Total knee replacement. Has anyone had to do this ?? Any advice ?? Don't want to stay on all these pain mess forever! I just want my life back.
