I am seven years post op from a spinal fusion at l5 s1. I had hard wear removal about a year and a half after the fusion with the exception of one screw, that broke while trying to remove it. So I have a pice of broken screw in my spine. I recently had a baby in May. My orthodox suggested c section because of my history of back problems and I also had a severe labral tear in my hip. This past month I have been experiencing severe burning/pulsating pain at my fusion sight. It almost feels like my back is going to bend backwards if that makes any sense. The pain is localized more on the right side which is the same side as the broken screw. My back doctor has recently passed away so currently I do not have a back doctor. Anyways my question is has anybody had issues several years after a fusion. I was feeling great up until recently. Thanks!!
