Symptoms of non-fusion and failing hardware ????
I was hoping to hear what symptoms people have had before they are told that they are not fused, or that their hardware is failing.
I am hoping that all is well, but last x-ray taken at 8 weeks post fusion didn't show any fusion at all. That was a long time ago, and hopefully things are now fusing well.
I am now at 8 months post fusion. I am having quite a lot of neurological symptoms in my feet and legs and occassional nerve type pain in my buttocks and lower back.
More worrying, over the last month or two, I have been having a slipping/clicking type of pain especially when I am lying on my side and turn over. I have also felt this when sitting in a chair and I cross my leg.
Pain wise, things are not too bad at all; much better than before surgery. I hope that is a good sign that all is well. :-) I trying to remain very optimistic.
