Re: Domino effect..................??
Hi Devon. I'm someone who has very fragile bones due to osteoporosis. In my case I had my first fusion because of compression fractures. Unfortunately, every time I had a fusion the next vertabrae (upper and lower) later fractured and it was a total domino effect. Now I am completely fused from C4-S1 and my sacral joints are also fused. If you have good healthy bone above and below the fusion point, you should be pretty happy with the outcome. If you have any question, however, I think I would hold off. Good luck! Memere (KathyMac)
