In August 2014 after never having any back pain I underwent a spinal fusion L4 L5 anterior. It is now six months later and I'm still having trouble bending twisting or moving in any direction and sitting. I almost feel like the pain occurs around the screws and metal can anyone tell me what their pain is like is it more muscular because I have that as well but I am unclear why the pain is so severe around the metal thank you for listening
