I had back surgery in April 2016. Rods from my neck to my tailbone. Oct. 2017, they broke in half. It took them 3 months to be able to do surgery to fix them. In those three months, I set in a recliner. I couldn’t do anything . So I can tell you titanium will break. I’m doing good now. Other than I just can’t do anything. I lost my life when I had to have the surgery. But I’m doing good.
