I have wicked wicked pain up and down what seems to be the rods. I've seen numerous doctors and no one seems to know what this pain is from. It just about brings me to tears every night.....and I can't do much at all during the day due to the pain. Feels like inflammation, but I have already done the steroid therapy and that did nothing.
Does anyone know if scar tissue up and down and around the rods could be causing this much pain. So much that I am on oxi (a fairly low dose) and gabapentin for the pain.

Could it be a sensitivity to the hardware?

I have terrible terrible pain.........I've been thinking that it's scar tissue adhesions.........no doctor seems to have any information about this.

I've also wondered if I have a sensitivity (or allergy) to these rods (already had to have stainless steel rods removed due to nickle allergy) (now I have titanium).

No doctor wants to give 'allergy' or sensitivity a thought. They all say....no way.

Yet here I am in terrible pain.

Any thoughts would be appreciated
