My insurance company actually did pay for some of this procedure. BCBS covered 80%. I should let you know that I am still covered by my parents health insurance because I am in college.

I am not to worried about the screw. I think it is causing all my pain right now. I can stand and walk but not very long. I get really bad muscle spasms on my right side. I get the tingly and burning that goes down from mid lower leg to about the ankle.

I am now 2 days post op for the revision of the L5 pedicle screw. Good news the doctor did not have to replace the screw. He just had to replace the locking mechanism. So much better then the screw. I have experienced a lot more pain this time around. There seems to be a lot of pressure around the incision site. Doctor told me it was okay. So I am doing really well.
