I plan on getting another opinion. I have an appt at Christmas to see my back surgeon. I'm hoping that since he did my surgery and knows me that maybe he'll have an explanation as to my pain. I didn't mention it before but sometimes I get this really uncomfortable feelings in my left leg. Its not pain really or at least not sharp pain. Its not constant so the doctors don't seem too concerned. The pain in my leg seems to be relational to the pain in my back. The more my back hurts, the more I notice the leg pain.

How did your screw break? I saw the size of the screws they use and I find it difficult to believe that it could break. Was it broken right from the start?

Thanks for your responses

: Lisa,

: Hi. Me again. Maybe you should get another opinion. I went to so many Doctors until they figured out what was wrong before my 1st surgery. I also went to 2 before my second repair surgery and was told I was fine. Nope, that wasn't true. I don't have much faith myself anymore.

: Stick to your guns. Don't back down. You know your body. I insisted to my Doctor 7 months before my repair that I knew something was wrong. He handed my a box of tissues and said have a good cry, your healing fine. Oh yeah, broken screws are normal, right? You see what I'm saying. lol

: Ask to have a CT done and an EMG to see if there is any nerve root irritation? I think we all have aches and pains, but you know when you need pain meds to make it through the day, something is wrong!

: Stay strong and hope I helped ya. Sorry you have to go through this. Been there!
