I hope some one has had a similar situation and can shed some light....
I am 6 months out from a 2 level fusion and still have odd pains. So, i went for a follow up MRI and they said i have fluid building up on my spine right on the surgery area. They said i will have to have it drainined.
What does it all mean??? Is this really bad??
Has anyone else had this problem?

  • people here discuss it and I do not think that it was said to be all that horrible. I think that they put a tube in and drain it. I am sure that somebody that has actually experienced it will come along shortly.
  • i am dying for more info. The MRI technitian told me and showed it to me and my Dr won't be available til next week to explain the options.
  • advertisement
  • I have never heard of it myself - so all I can do is wish you some nice calming vibes and good luck.

    Keep us posted.
  • If maybe they use a needle and drain it that way. *shrugs*

    Either way..good luck :)
