... I am the wife of a 40 year old man that has had five lower back surgeries. He is suffering from failed back syndrome as a result of his first fusion. The best thing that you can do is remain nicotine free. My husband is a smoker and, even with the patch, for some reason, the nicotine impedes the fusion. Can I ask the name of the doctor who will perform your "redo surgery."... (10 replies)

... :) Hi Gerri, I agree with the recommendation to go to a neurologist who specializes in spine surgery. Also, it sounds like you need to have a discogram to determine the pain generator. I am having spinal fusion surgery on September 12 to fuse L4-L5, after about 20 years of increasing lower back and leg pain. I was, also, diagnosed with MS (over 40 lesions in the... (7 replies)

... I'm not sure how common it is to remove hardware in the cervical area but it is done all the time in the lumbar area. If the person is actually fused, it makes no difference. I was fused at L4-L5. At the time, several surgeons told me I needed a 3 level surgery, but even more surgeons told me I required a one level surgery. I decided to go for the one level, but it never... (4 replies)
