    Is it difficult to get new insurance after having had spinal fusion? Are insurance companies less willing to insure you, or will they force you to pay higher premiums?

    About having the rods removed - my doctor told me that unless they're causing a problem, they're not usually taken out, and that there's not actually a lot of point in taking them out.
