Hey there! I have a recurrent T1 lucency and my scoliosis surgeon wants to remove the pedicle screw [and ?? maybe one of my 5 rods?] at T1. He said that with time that the vertebrae ??? gets worn by the movement if the "screw is loose". [Can't remember exactly what he said]. He mentioned that it was a "small procedure" that takes "15 minutes". He said that everything appears fused, so I do not need hardware replacement.

Oh well.
