hi! I need some advise please. I was scheduled for my 3rd spinal fusion on 11/1 however, when I went to my doctor last week he told me he won't be able to do my surgery. My old fusion didn't take and according to him one of my screws is right by a main artery and he won't take the chance. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm hurting so bad I'm willing to take the chance of bleeding out on the table for relief.
