On June 21st, I had my left SI joint percutaniously fused with 2 screws. I am having severe hip, leg, and foot pain. There is also numbness in my foot, and I am having very bad spasms in my hip.
I had an EMG performed last week that said I have a severe pinched nerve around the S1 level.
Yesterday, July 31st, I had a CT scan performed. I went and picked the report up myself from the records dept. since I had not heard anything, and was wondering if I could get some assistance with the report. It reads as follows;
"Impression: Interval screw fixation across the sacroiliac joints. Alignment is adequate. The more anterior of the 2 left sacroiliac joint screws is actually anterior to the sacroiliac joint with a portion of the screw in the region of the sacral plexus."
It sounds to me like the screw is misplaced, but I can't be for sure, and I have heard NOTHING from my surgeon's office.
All I need is information, which is peace of mind. Can someone PLEASE help me. I am in a lot of pain, and I am off of work with no pay. I need this taken care of ASAP, but I feel as if the only one that is concerned is myself.
