I had my spinal rod fusion done in 1983, 25 years ago and just here in the last few months, I have been in excruciating (spelling?) pain. There was one night in particular that I was in a deep sleep and was woke up with a stabbing pain in my lower back, I have never felt such pain even after all I have been through with kidney failure. Anyways, I went to an ortho doctor last week and the x-ray showed that the rods have shifted and it was no wonder I was in so much pain. He has now referred me to a spine specialist, November 28th and I have no idea what he might suggest to do. Has anyone else experienced this and if so, what did they end up doing for your rods that had shifted? Thanks to anyone in advance for your input/advice.
