Hi I am new to the forum and posting on line really for anything but I am 33years old and had spinal fusion surgery at L4-L5 4 weeks ago. I had been complaining to my Dr since the beginning that I had pain down my leg and numbness in my groin. All my Dr kept saying is that it is normal and the surgery had went so well and the screws were placed in strong bone... How happy with my surgery he was. Last Thursday I had a medication appt with his nurse practitioner and I told her about what I had come to call my episodes... Severe pain in my groin to the point that I could not stand walk lay down. I didn't know what to do when it happened but cry and scream the pain was so bad. She said it could be normal... There was nothing normal about this... But she was ordering a CT just to be safe. My Dr called me Friday night and said that the right screw was out the side of my spine and on a nerve. I'm guessing my femeral nerve because of my symptoms but he never said. He told me to be in his office first thing Monday morning they were removing the right screw and not replacing it. He said that the left screw would be enough to get a fusion. He kept down playing everything and after surgery said that this only took about 30 min so it was kind of a non surgery. My pain seems worse but I was also only 3and a half weeks post op before they cut the same incision and went back in. Has anyone had revision surgery so close to there original fusion?
