Since my fusion of L4/5 two years ago, I have experienced 24/7 pain in the area of my back where my fusion was done. At times, it can be very debilitating. I will be having removal of the hardware soon to see if this relieves this pain. My NS gives pain relief a 50/50 chance.
Those of you who have had hardware removal, please share your experience. Was the recovery difficult and was your pain relieved to any degree?
