I'm wanting to know at what point do I need to go to A & E?
I had a lumbar fusion 4/5 14 years ago and about 12 weeks ago my back pain changed it felt like it had come away, I had an MRI which showed no change but then an X-ray found a possible loose screw in my fusion, I'm waiting for a CT scan (2weeks) but I have numbness in legs (nothing new there) burning in legs and feet especially when resting which is pretty scary as this is a new sensation, I can barely walk across the room, more worrying I have bladder problems... I have no warning when I need to go it is sudden and by the time I get to the loo Iv leaked a bit, at first I put it down to not getting up stairs on time because of the lower back pain and being unable to move quickly, I also have a weird sensation in the saddle area but again Im not sure when it becomes urgent and don't want to be a pest, do I wait for the scan in 2 weeks or go to A & E now, I'm not incontinent so like I say am I being a pest
