Had this dang surgery over 10yrs ago and it's been truly an INCREDABLE success. No problems at all until about a month ago. Now experiencing a grinding and clicking at the bottom of my hardware where four 2in screws are. No pain. Maybe a little dull ache at times but I wouldn't even give it a 1 on the pain scale. Just made an appt with the same surgeon That did the surgery. Haven't seen him in over a decade that's how great the turnout was with this surgery.
Sad now that I have issues.
What do yall think it could be?
