Re: PLIF Hardware Removal
I had just one piece of my hardware taken out. It was done as an outpatient. I was in recovery for several hours, then was fine to go home. Recovery for me took a couple of months, as the hook was imbedded in bone and had to be wrenched out, causing a lot of tissue and nerve irritation. But I'm glad I let him do it. I'm much better off now!
I hope the hardware is the problem and that you'll have less pain after you've had some time to heal. Let us know how it goes and how you're doing.
