I had surgery for two spinal fusions, After the first fusion I was in more pain than before. 3 months later the surgeon tells me that the same fused disk had ruptured again. I asked how can a disk rupture once it's fused but got no real answer. I went back in and had it fused again. Now after two supposed fusions the disk is again starting to rupture. My new doctor sent me for and MRI and a CT Scan and found out that all they did was put in a small clip on one side of the disk and that no fusion is seen on an MRI or CT Scan. Now prior to the supposed fusion the same doctor performed a multilevel L23,L34. & L45 ant aria and post aria spinal fusion. I was told that the L5S1 fusion would be similar procedure as the above L23,34,45 but clearly it was not.
