I recently sept 13 had my l5-s1 fusion.
While in hospital I had horrible pain, they ordered cat scan and surgeon said I had a cracked pedicle bone.
He went in 3 days later for a "revision"
After the nerve pain went away and my back was healing it felt good considering.
About 2 weeks ago I had horrible pain in lower left back on the bone itself. It's the same side as "revision".
I went to e.r, they did a cat scan and the results were a fracture in the same area as previous fracture.
I followed up with surgeon he said said" it's the fracture from the surgery 3 months ago"
He also referred me to a hip specialist and physical therapy for back.
My back is killing me and I know my hip is ok.
The pain radiates across my hip and lower abdomen. I'm going for a second opinion becouse I think my surgeon is "washing his hands" of me. Probably becouse of the i rial mistake he made and had to correct.
I'm a healthy 40 year old male, no history of a hip problem.
Has this happened to anybody else?
