Bad news!

I saw my spinal specialist on Monday 16th May, only to be told that the operation I had last year has failed. The top two screws are loose and will have to be put right, so I am back on the surgical waiting list yet again!
He is hoping to be able to do a simple exchange of screws (bigger ones) and bone grafts with my own bone and also synthetic material, but if when he gets in there it cannot be done, then it will mean fixation all the way up to my neck!

I have been following you for about 1/2 a year so I don't know the operation you had. I'm very sorry it didn't work though and that you will have to undergo more surgery!!

I'm so sorry. I hope the exchange of screws is all you'll need and you'll be back on your feet as soon as possible.

Oh, how miserable for you. The fix-it up to the neck sounds awful, so I hope the other solution will work.

How frustrating! I'm praying for you that you will feel as good as possible for as long as possible, and that this one will finally do the job.
