I had my first surgery in Oct. of 03, it was a fusion on L4/L5-L5/S1, it did stop all the pain I had the surgery for, shooting pain starting in right hip and shooting down right leg into foot. I just had my second surgery on Dec. 14 04, because two of the 8 screws were loose and causing some back pain that was not going away. They were able to remove all the hardware !!! the one level of the fusion did not take all the way but it was solid enough to not need and hardware, they did use Infuse to try and improve the half failed fusion. I would recommend the surgery as long as you have exhausted all other treatments, some times they do help. I had no choice my one vertbre was moved more than an inch out of alignment. There are never any gaurantees but it's worth the risk. God Bless, and good luck.
