Broken Screws

Hello, in December 2018 I went through C Spine fusion with C4 and C5.  When I woke up from surgery I felt amazing. I had so much relief that i didn't even take pain meds while in the hospital or during recovery.  At the 3 month checkup everything was great still. Shortly there after, the pain set in and it was ba . Some days I couldn't get up out of my chair from dinner. At the 6 month check up it was discovered 2 of my titanium screws broke. 

At this point my doctor isn't saying much other than he needs a CT scan before anything else. What do I expect from surgery to correct the broken screws?
