Does anyboy have experience that an ADR at L4L5 causes total instability of the lumbar spine and causes severe and more pain? It happen to me and the ADR had to be removed and replaced by a cage/fusion. Also this cage has not fused well and I have to have revision surgery.
If I will advice to do ADR or not? Don't do it!! I have heard a lot of terrible stories of people and where the ADR have to be removed by a riskfull revision surgery.
