I need help. I have had two fusion surgerys of the lower back l5 l4 s1,In my last visit to my doctor he told me that I need to have a hardware block. to see if I get relief from the pain, and if I do he said that the hardware needs to come out.I would like to hear from poeple who had their hardware removed. what was like after the remove.did you get better.did the the pain went away, did you get more movility etc.


  • I do know of one member who recently had hardware removed from L4/5 fusion and is very happy with the results. I am looking into this as well.

    Best to you,
