I have wrote here before about spasms in my back. Went to my surgery who said he would send me for am mri as he couldnt tell very well from the xrays if my back was moving or not. He said that if it was then he would operate. I have a questionhas anyne got the metal put back in mine was taken out and now he said he will refuse above and below fusion and stop any progression. Does anyone know is this operation painfull?

and has anyone had an mri and knows how does this tell you if your back is moving or not?
