I could really use some help here. I had surgery may 15th. Axial lift and where we live the Doctor had to use "rods, or screws" down the sides of the spine besides the ones used in the traditional axial lift video. I have had increasing pain since the surgery. finally two weeks ago the Doc order a CT scan of my back and I was informed one of the "rods" has come loose. His option is to put me in a back brace, and on a drug called Neurontin (sp), to help control the pain.
Has anyone ever had any dealing with this kind of issue before. And why can't the rod just be tightened or placed in a secure position. I have tried to research this and find nothing dealing with this issue. I do not sleep well. My entire right hip hurts all the time. I have shooting pains if I turn in the wrong way, or if I walk further than 50 yards. It seems to be controlling my life. It is making me very "cranky"
I would appreciate any input on this matter.
