post op hardness when I move

I had partial sacrum removal for tumor removal.  had fluid buildup. now have hard feeling in whole buttocks area when I move.  Feels like hard things there only when I move or sit (which I can't sit much as it hurts still).  Worried the fluid turned hard. Doubt a blood clot as it's the whole area that I feel hardness.l  And feeling is hardness of parts that seem to move around when I move.  Had surgery out of town so hard to do followup. lynnet20022002@yahoo

Dear Friend,
It will be really difficult to comment about the reason for the hardness.
Best way out would be an X-Ray and if still unclear, would require a CT scan.

Possibility if bone growth is more rather than any other reason (like clots / fluid hardening).

But we really need to know the real reason.
If it's bone growth, then we need to rule out new tumor growth also....

Please visit your local orthopaedician and get the required opinion.

If you need any help from my side also...please let me know.

Regards..
