Hey all. I'm 7rs post fusion and have been experiencing a lot of pain at the surgery site. A couple x-rays showed that one of my screws has broken. The doctor doesn't think that is causing the pain. I can actually feel something moving/rubbing in there when I move. There is also some deterioration of the disc space of the above vertebra, but this is some intense lower back pain I am feeling, not that dull back ache or radicular nerve pain. The fused bone looks good still.
Has this happened to anyone else here? I am beyond myself and don't know what to do. I thought this was all over with -- I can't imagine going through any more surgery.
