I was diagnosed with scoliosis in 2005 and had a spinal fusion done June 2005. Over a year later, I started having a lot of pain again and at a check-up found out that I had a broken rod. I had my second surgery done May 2008. Since I recovered, I have been mostly without pain. My back only hurts after long car rides or in the fall/spring when the weather changes. I now have 2 hard bumps on my spine a few inches away from each other. I started to notice them awhile ago but didn't think much of it (I'm pretty skinny) and I couldn't remember if it had always been that way. But one seems quite big now so I think it has gotten bigger over time. I'm not having any more pain than normal though. Has anyone else had anything like this happen to them? Could it scar tissue or is a screw loose? I made an appointment with my regular doctor for next week Monday to get a referral to see an orthopedic specialist but I'm feeling a bit worried. My husband and I are also trying to conceive so I'm wondering if we should stop in case I need surgery.
Thanks for your responses in advance.
