Migration of Bone Cage into spinal canal after Bi Lateral Decompression fusion of L2,3
I had sustained a L4,5, S1 15 yearrs ago anterior posterior fusion. Recently I had a posterior Decompression/ Fusion of L2,3 . The bone cage and screws migrated into my spinal canal causing nerve damage to my left leg. 7 months later another surgeon completed a revision surgery, removing all hardware, difficult to remove all due to how deeply into the sc it was. I then underwent a L2,3 anterior /posterior fusion with revision and stabilization of newly placed hardware.
I am now using an electric wheel chair as I can not put any pressure on my left leg.
How long will it be for new fusion to be complete and how long for nerve damage to repair itself?
Recently I now have sizeable swelling around my left foot and left calf. I was seen in the ER and was told that I do not have a blood clot, cardiac rhythm is fine. What is up with that can spinal canal trauma cause edema? It has been 3 months since the revision and stabilization surgery, ( 2 ) procedures total 3 spine procedures within 9 months.
Thank you for responding if one happens by this post. Jane
