First off, hope all is good with my Spiney Friends. I had a doctor's appointment today, now I'm scheduled for surgery on Monday at 11:30am. I had a hardware block on June 3rd that actually gave me some relief for a few days. So Monday I'll be getting my hardware from my TLIF L4-5 removed.
My doctor said he was going to check my fusion done 8 month ago) to see if I am fully fused. If I'm not he's taking a bone graft from my hip & repacking the areas not fused.
So I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's just a hardware removal & nothing else. If anyone has any info on hardware removal surgery I'd love to hear about it.
Any help here would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
