I had spinal fusion surgery 2 weeks ago. At the top of my scar is a hard painfull lump..that has appeared over the last week. As well as this appearing in the last 7 days,as has some of the pain I was suffering from before the the exact same place. I ve had a fusion surgery before..& this time it feels different...last time the pain didn t return..but it has this time. But it s the lump I m worried about & whether it s connected to the pain returning.

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
The lump with pain at the scar is looking like a collection of blood or pus at the operation site.
Clinical examination is required to know the reason for the development of lump.
Do you have fever?
Any discharge from the lump?
Consult the surgeon for review.
Hope I have answered your query.
