Bye-bye Iliac anchor screws and PAIN!

Hi it's been a long time since my last post. 
Long story short...had total spine reconstruction 2/15/13 from t4 to s2. My anchor screws have always bothered me until recently. I thought one was broken due to the excruciating pain. My doc decided it was time to remove these 2. I continued with pt to keep strong which is helping. I had my surgery which lasted 2 hours. Stayed in hospital. I was not doing well on narcotics even with the neasous meds. So I had iv Tylenol and some valium which is making it tolerable and keeping my mind straight, still have anesthesia brain though. So far I can say my previous pain is gone and no more feeling like something was broken. Just normal post op pain. I'm optimistic and keeping my mind off this pain and using ice every hour. It's a big help!  I knew something was not right and again felt movement even though I have numbness there. It was and is worth the post op pain which will soon be better! 
Live, love, laugh, it could always be worse.
