It's been a year and 5 months since my L1-L3 fusion. Iv known something was wrong due to my increasing pain! No one was taking me serious it was pissing me off which made me depressed and alone. My last visit to my Spine doc was in Oct 11 I had an MRI that I begged him for, the results were that my hardware was in place so I must be fused nothing more he could do see you in a year!
My father has a good friend who is a neurologist in Detroit I'm in Toronto. I recently e-mailed him and told him what has been going on with me he was upset to hear I was still in agony with my back. He asked me to come down for a 2nd opioun with a neurosurgeon. Needless to say I had a CT on Wed flew home on that day got a call today to say the hardware is loose with non-union! needing a ALIF.
I'm so upset and pissed off I had to go to the States for bloody answers. I'm getting all the reports and the CT sent to ASAP going to my surgeon here next week for a "talk"
Has anyone else gone through this? How was the Dr's reaction??
