spinal fusion

Started by Michelle debra on 10/23/2015 11:31am

I had a spinal fusion 6 months ago, I had a grade 3 spondalolithesis , and have had it for as long as I can remember, ..... anyway on my last x ray just last week , it shows one of my screws has broken (I have 6 screws ,2 rods, and a bone graph ) I am now waiting for a c.t. scan, then my surgeon will decide what we do next, I am so disappointed, I feel ive done everything right and this has happened...I think were hoping that the bone graph has made good progress and the broken screw can just remain where it is,....im really tender around the groin area, but if I take some anti inflammatory's this normaly calms down during the day, I wouldn't say im in real terrible pain, but I have noticed my back makes a real creaking noise whilst im in bed at night, it doesn't hurt, its just very strange.....just wondered if anybody else had any experience like me !
