How to Test If Pedicle Screw Isn't Holding

How to Test If Pedicle Screw Isn't Holding

I have had a fusion with pedicle screws and plates. Little improvement if any noted and a minor bump a few years later put me back at square one.

I have read that the pedicle screws may tear loose from the bone and not provide support when the fusion fails. My question is how do I test for this? If anybody has already had this surgery and it failed, what was your next step?
