I have posted before about my daughter’s complications after fusion surgery. As of today, she has a new symptom. She has 2 hard knots on/near the spine toward the top of her fusion site. I would guess the top one is around T5 and another just a little lower. The knots visibly stick out, and are between acorn and walnut sized. She has burning pain around the knots and into both shoulder blades. She is on restricted activity due to a stress fracture at L4, so I have no idea what may have caused this. On call doctor thinks possible screws backing out. Has anyone experienced anything similar?
