Pedical screw bad placement and in nerves. L1. Anyone else?

Hey guys. While my ortho was reviewing my CT he goes " I don't like that" of course the words no one wants to hear. At the L1 level the screw is placed to close for comfort. However I read that 70% of oeople of who spine surgery do have mal placement of screws and they are fine. It's hard to tell on me because he said at L1 I would have sharp pain in my groin from it... Well I do.. And I always have because I have torn hip labrums that presents as groin pain. I also told the PA that I get pain that comes into my stomach. But I Always thought if you have back pain it could radiate.. Well that's the T12 area...that can be affected to from the pedical screw. He didn't seem to concerned. And I trust him 100% as I think he is a briallant doctor and was blessed with hands. I guess I was just wondering if this has happend to anyone else and if so what happend to you? Thanks all!!
