removal of screw from back

Started by Sue2u on 12/31/2010 1:57pm

have rods and screws in back from surgery 8 yrs ago. Had emergency surgery after accident which resulted inburst fx of L4. Did well untill last 6 months. My Dr. thinks the screws are causng irritation, thus the pain. Has any one had similar issues or know of any one who has had good results with screw removal?

Did you have a fusion? I did not but am also considering taking out my screws due to possible hardware failure and pain as well. My doctor is concerned with joint function after. Kinda in the same boat it seems. Let me know what you decide!! I'll keep you posted if I hear anything as well. Hope you start feeling better!
