Till you fuse : The plate and screws are there to hold the bones still till you fuse which typically takes about 3 months. After that they are not providing support. If you solidly fuse they will last well beyond your lifetime. If the fusion fails the screws will most likely loosen or break in a year or two. In that case you may need additional surgery. Ask your surgeon if you are fusing well.

Not usually: The ovaries are closer to you groin and not likely to refer pain to the tail bone. There are exceptions such as metastatic disease that directly effects the tail bone or causes irritation to the nerves that lead to the tailbone.

Thank you, your answer was very helpful! The Dr. I saw did not tell me much, and that answered some questions about what is going on with me.
