October 2013 - L4-S1 Fusion with 2 rods and 6 screws, July 2014 Removal of hardware and re fusion, since then I have had a mylogram, blood patch, emg, Bi lateral SI injections, Facet injections, Discogram, etc. My doctor has told me there is nothing more he can do. I went to another doctor and he thinks that my fusion hasn't fused. He is ordering an MRI and CT to see exactly whats going on. If it hasn't fused then he wants to go in and refuse it with a lot of bone from my hip and put hardware back in. I am so worried this won't fix the pain. Has anyone had anything like this? and How hard is it to get off the pain meds?
