It is possible to have disc herniation after fusion, especially if there is motion in the fused segments. It is also possible some of the pain may be coming from the segments above the fused level, esp. L3-4 or L2-3 which may result in the burning pain.
: I have been fused L4 to S1 with rods and screws 12 months ago. I continue to have right side pain in hip and severe muscle spasms in right calf hurts to walk sit. I just had a CT Myleogram. Radioligist report says bulging disc to left impinging on thecal sac. How is this possible if fused. Also recently have severe burning in front side of left leg HELP Is bulging disc causing all this pain THANK YOU
