Default Going back under the knife !

For those following the saga, the bone grafts from my spinal fusion have moved and are again touching the nerves. Dont have a date but it looks about 2 weeks. This will be spine surgery number 6 and the 3rd in a 2 month time period. Any spine surgeons out there ? Malpractice attorneys ?

Im going to need a really nice riding boat.

Daggone man, sorry to hear this, I feel for you. I hope you find you way thru this mess, pm me if you want to sound off a bit, would be more than happy to lend a hand. Good luck, keep'em honest. Have you considered a different doc?? I know you shopped hard initially, just curious about now. Hang tough, Allan

Sorry to hear the bad news. I feel for you, I've had numerous surgeries myself and may be going in again in the near future myself.

A new Doc will be doing this. The old Doc will be assisting. I have a friend of the family who is a spine surgeon who says Im in the best of hands possible (University of Chicago). I thought I knew what pain was about until now. Unfortunatley...**** happens. Thats why they call it practicing medicine. They are taking out the current bone grafts which were wedges much like what you use to drive into an axe handle to secure the axe head only made from bone. The new ones are threaded bone dowles that screw into place. I gues I need the medical grade thread locker, maybe some JB Weld.

Obnoxious, the Busa aint for sale and If the Docs succeed in criplin me, it will be converted into the baddest three wheeler on the planet.

Chris,
Sorry to hear youíre going in again! I hope this one will turn out with much better results. I think the surgeons should chip in and buy you something big!!!! A nice 40 something Skater, Outerlimits or NEW Apache. Thatís the LEAST they can do.
