In brief: First, it is

Unlikely that even if a screw was not properly placed would you feel any movement of it.
If the screw was placed about nerve tissue then you could experience pain and/or neurologic symptoms related to that nerve tissue. If the fusion did not heal then you may also experience a sensation of pain with motion of the back.
