I need some import from people please. I had a triple fusion done almost five years ago. I've had nothing but hard times since surgery. I'm 5'5 and only 95 pounds. 99% of the surgeons I've seen think my frame is just to small for the rods and screws. Within the past few months I've find out I have another herniated disc and sereve spinal synopsis. Most doctors want me to have surgery again bc I've lost all feeling in my left foot and it continues to get worse from the synopsis. They've also done some experiments on my rods and screws, most of the pain in my back is being caused by them. They want to take the rods and screws out even though they try to avoid that as much as they can. Has anyone in here ever had their rods and screws removed or knows anyone that had it done? I've researched it so much and everything I find, they say the surgery for it is 100 times worse than the fusions. I've come to this site so much before and since my surgery. For the most part I find my answers just by reading someone's else's questions and answers but I haven't found anything about rods and screws being removed. Please help me? I have two boys that I want to enjoy and I just don't know what to do. Thanx!!!!!
