I was fused from L3-T3 in 2016 (September) and since January this year have been experiencing severe pain in my right hip and lower back. Finally after convincing my surgeon there was something wrong as I couldn't go a day without codeine they found that I had a loose screw! On the 13th of November, they removed the screw and recovery was going well. However now my left hip is starting to play up. I have an appointment with my surgeon and rheumatologist in early January 2018. I don't know whether to alert my surgeon sooner or just to see how it goes? I also have Hypothyroidism so wondering if its arthritis? I'm only 20 and just want this to all go away!
