I am new and trying to search if anyone has had a succesful Pedicile Screw removal surgery and is happy they had it done. I am fused at L5-S1. I am not having severe pain, I just want them out because they are bugging me and I can feel one of the screw heads poking out of my back. Thanks for your feedback. Hawaii

  • hi hawaii...sorry the dog gone screw is bugging you. I know what it's like to have surgery and then get bothered by mechanics that feel different. I've had a couple of hip replacements and 6 spine surgeries(two of them were fusions) when my hip was replaced i kept getting snaps when i walked. it really bothered me and i started snapping it on purpose (nervous habit) in time i forgot about it and now it's like it never happened.
    for me anyway time cured the problem. when you think of possible complications from further surgery it might be best to give it some time and maybe in time it wont bother you anymore it sure wouldn't hurt to wait a while.....best of luck pete
