Hello, my name is Nancy and I am new here. I had spinal fusion at L4,L5,S1 about 6 years ago. However, I am still having lots of discomfort and pain, and miss having a normal life doing normal things. My doctor suggested that I may find some relief in removing the rods and screws, but said there are no guarantees. I am thinking seriously of doing this, but would like some input if anyone here has experience or an opinion about this. Thank you so much in advance.
