    Post surgery fusion T-10 to S-1

    Hello.

    I have had two fusions. One in the C-spine and a failed one in the L-spine. I am considering a long fusion t-/9-10 to S-1.

    I am 60 yrs old and am interested in people of any age who have had similar surgeries more than two years ago and how they are doing currently.

    Hello,

    OMG that is a very long fusion! I’m sure you know that most surgeons do not like to do more than two levels, three tops. That being said, longer ones are done. I hope you have gone for many “second opinions.”

    How is your health otherwise? How many other options have you explored? And, how “bad” are your issues? The only people I know who have had this big a surgery are scoliosis patients and it was done in their teens!
