Spinal Fusion ALIF at L5S1 and L3-4 complications
I had an ALIF on L5S1 and L3-4 in 2005. After 3 month check L5S1 was loose. They removed a screw in front and percutaniouskly screwed metal on both sides of L5S1. I have endured pain through the years and went from injections, spinal cord stimulator, epiderals, pain meds etc. to now. I now have neuropathy that leaves the bottoms of my feet feeling like I am walking on bubble wrap with water in the bubbles. An emg from 2010 shows Impressive impairment to the S1 nerve roots with the right side more affected that the left. I am considering having the screws and metal removed. Does anyone have any light to shed on this?
