I had a urod pars repair with bmp
Im 3 months post op and my pain is very bad.
Its more stable than before surgery but i still feel & hear some instability.
Do you think theres a chance it can heal.
Iv been in pain for 5 years
Successful pars repair depends upon how much slip was present before surgery, how much “gap” (or distraction) of the fracture ends was noted prior to surgery, what the quality of the disc was and how precise the repair of the pars defect was performed. At this point, I really can’t tell without images how predictable your pars repair healing will be. If your pain is “really bad”, maybe X-rays with flexion-extension will be helpful and eventually a precise CT scan will be necessary.
