    I feel for you, Had Harrington rods put in after unsuccessful Fusions. From my neck to upper Lumbar. Have to admit, pain dropped from unbereable (9) to A constant (7). With proper Meds and being extremely cautious of doing anything I shouldn't do. I can squeak by. Have hurt myself many times. Could be laid up from a day to several weeks 3 or 4. The surgery was in 1994. Now I have all kinds of issues, to many to write down. However, I got a good 10 to 15 years of relief. Now things are getting bad. Just got my electric Wheel chair, Love it. I can go places I wouldn't try before. I wish you all the luck, Hope things go good 4 you.
