In brief: Swelling,

Swelling, itching, and pain in the legs that gets worse with standing is a pretty classic picture of venous outflow problems.
This can happen with blockage (say, if you developed blood clots during or after your surgery), or if you have developed abnormal function in the one-way valves in your leg veins. It would not be picked up on an MRI of the spine or on a bone scan. Instead, you would need an ultrasound examination of your legs. I would recommend that you find a vein specialist in your area.
