Diagnosis of chronic pain post lumbar fusion?

Hi all,
Curious for those of you that have had a fusion, and been diagnosed with chronic pain post op?
I had a CT scan last week, and surgeon states I'm fusing. CT scan report says there's a large streak due to artifact of hardware, so I'm curious as to how any issues would be found? He used BMP.
I have foot drop again, and bilateral numbness and tingling in feet and LE. (Was just right sided pre-op). Major back pain, too. Headed to my first PM consult next week. Just curious how those of you in similar situations were found with issues/ diagnosed. Thanks!
