FUSION NEVER HEALED- 2 YEARS LATER

After my surgeon ignoring all my complaints of pain, after L1-L3 fusion with hardware, he constantly told me I have healed well, not to come back, my life has been in a turmoil. I am now 68 years old, supposed to be in my retirement years. I am a non-smoker who did everything I was to do for healing, wore bone stimulator daily, went to physical therapy, which I had to stop because of severe pain. Have seen so many specialists, with no relief. If I could check myself into a hospital that could help me, I would. Does anyone know of any hospital that would help. Have under gone so much pain with many MRI, Cat Scans, just to be told that I never began to heal. Are there any qualified specialists to help?
