Unhappy Broken Rod

Hi all, just thought I'd update you on my progress. It's nearly 2 years since my revision surgery, and at the last checkup, we discovered a broken rod. I am astonished that these rods break so easily, but have read about several others dealing with this. I am at a bit of a loss what to do. Obviously not keen on further surgery, but new pain which I believe occurred as a result of the break has made life difficult and sleep almost impossible. Does anyone know how successful further surgery to repair broken rods is?? My main issue is the pain I am having in the sacro area, as well as referred pain in the groin and down the leg. This is particularly bad at night and lack of sleep is driving me mad. Any words of wisdom??
