Symptoms of broken pedicle screws

Started by Christiana on 05/11/2018 5:10pm

What are the symptoms of broken pedicle screws?
I am almost 11 months post 360° L5-S1 spinal fusion and i have sciatic nerve pain now and then and i am wondering if i have broken any pedicle screws. When i tough the area of the surgery it feels fine and normal and my only symptom is the occasional nerve pain. I do a lot of stretching and i excercise as much as i can without weights or jumping. I have started to bend a bit in order to stretch properly only because my muscles are much better and they allow me to bend. Also, i had a lot of scoliosis but after the surgery it has decreased, but i still have a bit of scoliosis, is it because of that?
