Well just had my 3 month post op consult.The doctor let me out of the brace says the facets have healed and the fusion is complete. Now for the bad news one of the screws went right through the vertebra, he says it's sticking though by 2 MM, he did not seem to concerned by it and said if it's not causing any pain to just let it be.However now that I'm home I can't help but think is this the reason I'm having the numbness in the left foot and some weakness in the ankle and sometimes both legs go completely numb when I sleep on my back.Just when I thought the roller coaster was coming to a stop now this. Anyone else have this issue.
