I was just wondering if anyone here has had a revision surgery because of a broken rod?

I had surgery almost 3 years ago but last year one of my rods broke because of pseudoarthrosis (a failure of my back to fuse). So this summer I will have my old rods taken out and my back refused and new rods put it.

My surgeon told me that this surgery will be easier on me than the last one. But since they're basically doing the same surgery over again it doesn't really seem like it could be much better.

So I was just wondering if anyone had had a similar surgery and if it really was easier than the first time?

Thanks for your help!!!
