Lightbulb AxiaLIF CLass Action?

I had an AxiaLIF in June 2009. At the time, I was told it was a 98% fuse rate. My doctor was getting paid by the TranS1 for doing a study and he manipulated the data on my fuse rate at least; claiming I fused when the CAT Scan showed I did not. He told me I could run again and I did not know I was running on an unfused L5-S1 making my problems worse. I went in to get the screws out in June 2011, thinking that was the problem. The doctor still did not tell me I was not fused, but for the first time before I was be taken back for the operation he hinted upon that. Again, from Jan, 2010-June 2011 he claimed my back fused, so this was shocking and I thought he was mistaken. Last month, I learned I was not fused for the first time from a different doctor. Now I left wondering why such a supposedly good doctor would manipulate the data. The CAT scan said I was not fused, but his notes claim I was. Was it so the FDA would approve AxiaLIF for other purposes? What type of bone grafting material did he use? Why is AxiaLIF even on the market with such a low fuse rate of 50%?! Any one else still in massive pain like me, needing additional surgeries? Let's start a class action or at least petition the FDA to get rid of this devise.
