Once one disk gets out of wack the others fall like domino's but slower because everything is out of alignment.
Guess it all depends on what you have fused. I cant imagine being as old as Peyton (or you lol) and having that procedure.
I got fused from T1 to L3 with 2 titanium rods and 26 titanium screws.
