I am going out of my mind waiting, I am just trying to find out if anyone has been denied hardware removal after 2 level lumbar fusion . Bone growth is picture perfect according to my surgeon. It is a workers comp case my pain is better but still not acceptable. before it was 7/10 now 3/10 nerve conduction test is all good. I had fusion, laminectomy, facetectomy. there"s nothing left. ANY FEEDBACK WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
