Have scoliosis. Spinal surgery done in the past. Lump in the back on spine which is painful. What could be this?

Hi, I have had a serious case of scoliosis . When I was 16 I had a spinal surgery and had rods placed in my back to straighten my back. I am now 21 I ve had a daughter who just turned a year, for the past few months I ve been in extreme pain. I now have a hump in my back on the top part of my spine that was not there before but has got worse for the past few months. When I touch it, it feel very sore and sensative and fluid like inside. I can t sleep on my back because the bump has grown so much out its hard to even walk or drive. Sudden movements cause a lot of needle like pain.. I don t know what to do and I don t know why this is happening...

You must follow up with the surgeon who operated on you or any other orthopedician. The rods that he had placed may have displaced or fluid filled cyst may have formed. you need to undergo x-rays etc for assessing the alignment of spinal bones. The soft swelling that is causing may be infected area too. I would advice you to immediately seek medical help.
Good luck.
