Hi all. So I just came back from my back doctor. Long story short in 2006 I had a spinal fusion l5-s1 and in 2008 had hardware removal during removal one of the screws broke(the back end)and is still stuck in there. I have since had a baby a year ago in May 28th and since birth have been experiencing a severe burning pain in my back. dr ordered an MRI and could see that the broken screw has shifted and his now pinching a nerve. He wants a better idea of where it's at so he is ordering a CT scan and is talking possible surgery. Has anybody experienced this? What was the recovery time?
