    18-year old with questions

    Hi, I had surgery almost two years ago a fusion from T4-L4 and i was wondering about a few things regarding my rods. I have a tender spot on my back. Its in my upper middle-ish back and it doesnt hurt at all if i dont touch. It hurts when i sit and my back is against a chair it hurts alot. Im wondering if thats normal? Could it be that at that certain spot the rods may be irritating the surrounding muscles? If so, what is the treatment for that? I have xrays coming up this week, but can u see that problem on an x ray? TIA!

    On a side note, im also having general upper back pain? I dont know if these pains are related to each other.
