I'm having excruciating burning pain in my groin, thighs, lower back, etc. etc. My doctor has diagnosed me with neurogenic claudication as a result of the hook of my harrington rod destroying the discs below it. He has prescribed a CT Myelogram (scared to death of that) and said that I may need to have the rod removed or the hook clipped off. My rod has been in place for 40 years! Has anyone had their rods taken out after 20+ years? What was the surgery like? The recovery? Did it help you with your pain? I need info before I consent to doing anything.
Ty in advance for any info.
