2nd broken pedicle screw causing symptoms?

Started by Badtothebone Barbie on 09/04/2018 1:16am

Hello -
After 2 spinal fusions (spondylolisthesis), I have learned that I have another broken screw. First broken screw replaced during 2nd spinal fusion surgery L3-S1 in 2009. Last MRI (2 years ago) indicates I've broken another screw. I'm now having pain in left leg (feels like a clamp is wrapped around my thigh) and a lot of pain in my lower back/left pelvic bone. Could this pain be coming from the broken screw? I'm hesitant to go back to spine surgeon but pain is getting gradually worse. Has this happened to anyone else? How did you manage the situation? Also, I have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, so connective tissues aren't that great. Thank you!!
