Issues with Peek Cage and Hardware

Started by Nicole81 on 06/10/2016 3:31am

Hi All,
I am going in for a second fusion on June 22. My first was in November - PLIF of L5-S1. The surgeon didn't put the cage in far enough, so it is impinging on my nerves. Also, the top screws are impinging on the joints. In addition to fusing L4-L5, my new surgeon (who found these issues) will be shaving down the cage so it is not impinging and removing the top screws. Has anyone come across anything similar? I am getting nervous!
