Hi fellow spineys.
I was having some pain in my lumbar yesterday, right more than left and it seemed like it was at the base of my right rod/bottom screw. (My lumbar pain is almost always on the left bottom side and top across both sides.) It not only hurt from inside, but also to the touch. So as I was feeling around there, I found what seemed like a fatty lump where I was hurting. The lump is painful to press on and it moves.
Anybody else had one of these painful lumps near or on your lumbar hardware and if you did and talked to your doc, what did they say? I'm just asking for your experiences here, not a diagnosis.
I'm thinking that this is most likely a benign fatty tissue lump and might be flaring, causing pain because I now have hardward and a screw in that area.
