    I had a deep wound infection caused by hardware. It basically disintegrated in my spine. I had all hardware removed when it was discovered.


    Felt like I had the flu

    Big bump full of pus on my scar

The surgeon I found to remove them says that the screw is 1 cm to the Aorta and that is a concern to him. Did you have any screws location concerns?
    I was never told about bad placement. When they took my illiacs out, I was told the screw was shakey in me. It had causes metalosis.
