I had lower back surgery 25years ago, screws were put in my L3 and L4, the Dr told me, the screws will be need to be taken out after 5 years, but I still have them, now I am experiencing low labido, do you think the surgery I had may cause this, do I need to go to the hospital so they can take the screw out. I do not have back pain .
