So I'm 6 months post op my spinal fusion L4 , L5, and laminectomy. Yesterday, I took a pretty wicked fall. I'm still recovering from my surgery, in pain management and what not. Having a lot of hip pain and, lost almost 50 pounds since surgery so there is already talked about removing hardware. My question is yesterday when I fell in came down incredibly hard on my hip. The pain is through my back up to my armpit on the opposite side. It doesn't feel as if anything is broken, just very badly bruised. Should I be concerned about my hardware? It does feel much tighter than usual. My surgeon has always said CT scans and what have you wouldn't be done till month 9/12, I don't know if I should bother him with this!? Thank you in advance for any opinions.
