      thank you. I went for a second opinion. And the other doctor did a X rays, and a MRI . And told me the surgery looks good, the thing its that it looks like the nerves are damaged and looks like some of the screws are cross it and its compresing a nerve. They talk about SCS. ( a chip to be install on my back. Do any body knows about that?

    If the screw if pinching a nerve, they should go in and change the screw position. Spinal cord stimulator helps to modulate nerve transmission aka pain signals. It seems extra to me to go in and add more hardware in when the issue is the screw pinching a nerve. I’d ask the doc about this issue.
