    congratulations for your courage...
    even though i know you have a broken rod, i still think it takes guts to schedule the surgery....
    wishing you the best....it HAS to be better to have a good fusion outcome rather rhan broken rods!

    This may be a dumb question, as I have not had the surgery. But why only one rod? It seems that most of the surgeries here are using two rods. I would think that would be stronger and less likely to break before fusion takes place. I know this was a hard decision for you. I wish you all the best and a quick recovery!

    How did you make out? I am most likely looking at a 3rd surgery. Betty B
