Can someone help me with this information:
I have often a severe right calf and foot pain as well as lower back pain. The pain is always there at some degree. I had a spinal fusion at L4 L5 two and a half years ago. I have had an emg, ncs, mri, and a cat scan. The emg/ncs were normal. The cat scan and mri showed that I have a right pedicle screw at L5 that is projecting past the lateral cortex of the right L5 vertebral body by 1.3cm from my fusion. my question is, would this cause my pain? I also have moderate central canal stenosis at L3-L4 with bilateral neural foraminal. My CAT scan also says that I have an abutment at the intraspinal S! nerve roots bilaterally. I have been told that the pedicle screw might need to be removed. Thank you.
