Unhappy Fusions and Plates and Rods OH MY!!

Ok, I had a ACDF from C5 thru C7 with donor bone , and plating. It didnot heal properly SO they went back in through the back this time and put another two rods and screws to get those verts to fuse properly. I also have lower back pain , because of cervical lumbar disc displacement, lumbar radiculitis and cervical radiculitis. I also have broad based disc protrusions, including an extruded disc herniation at L5-S1 on the right hand side with direct compression of the thecal sac and the S1 nerve root. What ever that means!! All I know is I`m in pain all the time.... I am scheduled for SX for my lower back issues in a few months, Any advice from anyone on this????
