Went to see my surgeon for my first post op visit. I thought I was doing pretty well with the recovery and making progress. Well he walks is sees that I am still using a walker does the check up and looks at the xrays. One of the screws might need to be moved and ordered a CT scan that was done this morning. The surgeon mentioned that the screw might be pressing up against the L4 nerve root and is the possible cause for the pain and the numbness in my leg.
So if the screw needs to be moved and re-aligned, how will that be done if anyone knows? I am sure that this isn't a common thing to have to do and to happen at all. I can see that the vertebra has a hole in it for the first screw how will they re-position in and not destroy what is left of the vertebra? I sure as hell don't want to do another surgery so fast its only been just over a month and to hear that I may need to have another surgery is frightening.
