fused back pain after 10 years

I had a spinal fusion 10 years ago from S1 to L3. Now I have been experiencing really bad pain in my lower back into my hips and sometimes groin. The pain is coming from my back but I have looked into kidney stones. I am afraid my back is going bad again. Does the fusion ever need a tune up?

Have you looked at SI joint problems? People with lumbar fusions often have trouble with them over time, and they can cause the type of symptoms you're having.
