Patient discussion about fusional

Q. Has anyone had a spine fusion that failed? Or hardware that failed?

A. Haven't experienced it myself, but here (http://www.spine-health.com/forum/treatments/back-surgery-and-neck-surgery) you may find a discussion about it.

Q. I'm having a lot of pain in my right leg after back fusion surgery. Any ideas why? This was my third back surgery. The doctor fused 2 levels. Before surgery I was having pain in my left leg. It is now fine. My right leg however is giving me fits. I've been on Neurontin (Gabopentin is the generic) for 4 weeks now and have very little relief.

A. Thank you Brandon for your input. I have talked with my surgeon on several occasions and he is as baffled by this as I am. His next course of action will be a myleogram. His is reluctant to do this because of the pain and discomfort involved. This is the most baffling thing I have ever experienced, especially when my very talented surgeon is puzzled by it. I do appreciate your input, and will discuss this with my doctor...Perhaps it is a blood flow problem. I have been walking and wear compression hose, with no relief unfortunately.
