I cant find any info on broken Pedical screws ? I went to ask Jeeves, But not much. Has anyone had these, And what happened? I am having alot of burning stabbing tearing feeling in my left hip and left leg. I knew somthing was wrong, But the PM Dr is telling me its ok it isnt hurting anything. I told him my pain is getting worse, He said it was because of the hardware close to my nerve ? I go for a shot tomorrow, Im going to ask him to call and send my X-ray to my Neurosurgeon who performed my operation. He'll probably say everything is ok to, Im not a hypo Just know somthing has been wrong in there for a while. :eek:

Eleven days after my son's surgery he complained about right leg, foot and calf pain and described all of the symptoms. His NS went back in and said that the L4 screw was minorly touching a nerve so they retracted it a bit and they totally removed the L5 screw. Neither screw was broken though and I know that was your question.
