C1 C2 Reversal? , Type 3 Fractured Odontoid, AntloAxis Instability

I'm just thinking out loud.....

Had a car accident and fractured the base of my Dens (Type 3 Fracture)....The fracture did not heal itself and now I sit two weeks post-op C1 C2 Fusion. 

What happens if I go back next month and the Bone Fusion is stillnot taking (Allograft and Autograft Bone powderized was used as a filler - no "bone square" cut out of hip/cadaver)..BUT, the fracture in my Odontoid has healed.......What happens? Has anyone ever heard of them simply removing the screws/rods and going "back to normal"?.......Again, thinking out loud.
