Broken L5/s1 screws

Started by 100001554421023... on 03/29/2014 9:56am

I had lower back fusion last July.Last Friday I received a call telling me I have fractured hardware. My surgeon is no longer with their practice. February I had an X Ray due to some pain and swelling in my lower back.I saw a nurse practitioner,she never said anything was wrong. Now a month later I am finally told about it. I saw another nurse practitioner at a neurosurgeons office who showed me my.X rays. Both of my s1 screws are broken in half. Is this common,I thought they were supposed to be strong? Thank you,I am worried. I have a MRI and CAT scan this Friday. Then the surgeon the 14th.
