Q.

I have had 5 back operations since 1995 till 2016

Since 1995 till 2016 I had 5 Back operations, I had a Fusion from L3 to S1. Since Saturday my vertebrae in the lower back started to snap/crack (like you do with your knuckles) Is it normal after a fusion. This cracking causes severe pain in the lower back and upper legs
