Posted in: Back pain, and Sciatica.

Lumbar fusion L5 S1 ten weeks ago

The pain that I went in to relieve sciatica is gone, but my lower back absolutely throbs and aches. I had exrays 6 weeks post op and there is a piece of metal from the device that attached the screws left in! I don't know if anyone else has had this issue. I don't know if that is what's causing my pain or it is normal to hurt this bad after surgery. If there was a way to attach a picture, I would so you would understand. It almost looks like a wine cork on top of one of the screws. Doctor said he had never seen it happen before.
