i have had 7 surgeries 4 of which have been Fusion. They failed and all my hardware was removed. I have major left leg nerve damage and my spine curvature is now not correct. I’m in major pain. Have seen 3 top surgeons and my case reviewed by 15 spinal surgeons. I’m having Fusion on L5-S1 & L5/L4 from Front. They will also block my spine to straighten as best as possible. This will be a 8 - 9 hour surgery. 2 days later they are going back in from side to fuse me up to TH10/11. So i will be fused from L5/S1 to TH10/11 so basically a 7 way Fusion. 16-18 hours of surgery. After exhausting all options and multiple opinions this is my only option as my spine is basically held together by bone fragments. Has anyone gone through such an invasive surgery and your outcome.
