I had Revision Surgery @ University of Virginia Health Systems 2002 now, because of ever increasing pain I have been to three orthopedic surgeons in Syracuse, NY. Becuse I live in Binghamton area.

What can I do? They say I need another all day surgery to replace all the hardware in my back and neck. I am older now and afraid. The pain is so bad I feel like a wheel chair is an obvious choice. The post-op is so hard, I don't think I am strong enough to go through it again. I am very bent over and cannot sleep at night unless I fall to sleep in my recliner. All I have is Medicare and I am afraid of the medical bills too. Do you have any suggestions? (Flatback/Failed Fusions
