TLIF Fusion Hardware Breaking or Loose

Has anyone who has had a one level fusion at the L5-S1 had their hardware (screws/rods) break, bend or come loose? And if so how did it happen and what are the symptoms you had?
I am only 4 weeks post op and so worried that this is going to happen, even though my surgeon said it would take a lot and that the screws are in there pretty good. Something in my lower back just does not feel right...When I press or feel back there when sitting or lying I can move something in there up and down...Not sure what it is...LOL
Any input would be great. Thanks! :)
