Hi, im 22, 1.65m and 62kg. I had two surgeries, first of astrocytoma GII Th7-Th11 in 1997 and second of scoliosis in 2003 but anterior approach. The scar after the second suregery stretches from 1 cm medial from spina iliaca anterior superior diagonally to 1 cm from my spine. Occasionally I have a pain that I would describe as a stabbing 5 cm from spina iliaca anterior superior on linea axilaris anterior, usually its 5-6 cramps in half an hour and then go and it happens once in hmm 2 months. But last was today and i have pain every 5 sec for hours. What that could be???
