    Car Accident Post Op

    Hello ,

    I am roughly 3.5 month’s post op from L1-T6 and got my “full clearance” as of 2/23. Earlier this evening I was in a fender bender going about 25mph. Air bags weren’t deployed. I feel fine minus clicking in my back which I get on occasion since post op. Is there anything I should be looking for if there is hardware damage , etc?

    Hi...

    You really only need to worry if you start having new and significant back pain. While some rods do break, it's really never because of a trauma.
