I just had some x-rays done to look at my back's progression since my fusion surgery. The images looked a little strange to me for a couple reasons, and I'm not sure if things are the way they should be. I plan on getting with my family doctor on Monday to see what she thinks, but I also thought I would post here to see if anyone has input or has experienced anything similar.
Here's what has me thinking: in the frontal image, it appears that my hips are even horizontally, but the hardware is tilted to the left (right in the image). In the lateral image taken from the side, it appears as if one set of the screws is further back (sticking out) more. I believe it is the right set of screws. I'm wondering if any of this looks off or unusual to anyone else...
Since the surgery, I don't have the same leg and buttock pain, but the back pain continues with only a little change for the most part. I know it's not the objective of fusion surgery to completely stop all the pain, so I'm not entirely surprised there. I just wonder if there's something that's not being completely explained to me concerning the state of my spine and hardware. It also doesn't seem to show any evidence of bone growth, which I thought at 12 weeks wouldn't be the case.
