Hardware Removal

6-7 years ago I had L4-L5 Lumbar Fusion. Starting 2-3 years ago the pain has become unbearable at times. I also I have an L5-S1 disc that has degenerated as well. My pain Dr. and I, after many procedures, have come to the conclusion that it is the hardware and scar tissues that may be causing all of the discomfort and pain. Has anyone had the hardware removed? Does it help? I am having a hard time finding a Dr. to do it.
