In February this year I had Percudyn Stabilisation Surgery at L4/5 and after a few months it became apparent that there was a problem again.
I revisited my surgeon for a follow up and had an x-ray taken prior to the consultation.
During the appointment I told the surgeon that the pain was returning and I wasn't happy.He stated that according to the x-ray it seemed as if one of my implants appeared to have retracted a little.
Following a CT scan and a Bone scan over the following three weeks I received a letter stating that after seeing the other scans it was confirmed.
My surgeon is now suggesting fusion of L4/5 following the removal of my implants and I have an appointment to discuss this on September 9th 2010.
What should I expect if I have the surgery as far as recovery times etc,pain levels etc,etc.
Can anyone think of questions I should be asking my surgeon at the consultation next month ?
