You may be able to receive additional workers compensation benefits. You may have a malpractice claim. What you need to do is to contact and consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
This sounds like a very complcated situation. The broken screw in the fusion is not an indicator of malpractice. However, some of your other complications may be a basis for malpractice. There may be a statute of limitations issue given the date of the last surgery. I believe that California has a very short statute, but there may be a way to toll the period in this instance. You should immediately consult a malpractice lawyer in your area to determine if there is a basis for a lawsuit.
