Re: Who has had BAK cage surgery
Not sure is this will help but what the heck.
I had a 360 fusion L4-S1 with cages rods and screws on Jan 9 2003 (yup it's almost my anniversary)
I've noticed very little mobility problems. In the last year I've surfed, road roller coasters and painted the outside of my home. I did have to have the rods and screws removed in December. The story is that I was running out of room with the scar tissue and all that metal back there. I feel much better now. The good doctor cleaned out the scar tissue, verified that I was fully fused, left the cages in and gave me on hell of a paper weight. He let me keep my hardware (ok so I'm weird).
I'm not sure if it's for everyone, but in my case it was a life saver!
(guess I should change my name now?)
