My NS was 80% sure this second surgery would take care of the pain but I was 90% sure it wouldn't even though it had to be done. The area was too unstable. I didn't have pain while I as in the brace but once I could get back to life as normal it all came back. I can only assume that maybe there's nerves involved some how that they didn't or couldn't see. I don't know what to do next
ALIF April 2011 but it turns out I broke before it barely fused.
