Sorry I didn't see the post. The back surgery went ok. hey got in there and found that the fusion was solid and ended up just taking out the cage and screws. The bottom two screws were loose and they thought that they were jamming into the nerves causing my leg pain. I was happy 1 1/2 hours on the table on Friday the 21st, out of the hospital the 22nd by 3pm. Was happy for 4 days until my LEG pain came back. I am hoping its just a healing thing so only time will tell. I see the dr on jan 8th and he will get an earful. 3 surgeries in 3 years and still have the same pain. AAAARRRRGGGGHHHHH. On a good note I still wake up everyday so that is a good thing. Give me a couple more weeks to heal and see what happens and I will chat with you about the mn chapter. Thanks for inquiring about the surgery.
