In brief: Postop complication

One has to worry about a delayed postoperative complication-significant!!!! Need to see operating surgeon .
Potential causes would be hematoma(blood) compressing spinal cord or even a spinal cord lesion remote from operative site

In brief: Scoliosis

If the paralysis, incontinence, and spasticity are new findings then there is likely compression on the spinal cord.
See the surgeon who operated on you for updated imaging and an evaluation.
