I have a roundish swelling next to my incision about midway(L5-S1 PLIF), it goes up and down a bit during the day and is painfull. I have been sick for the last few weeks, horrible headaches, neck pain and stiffness, sinuses etc, but the PCP said everything was fine. I did 2 weeks of antibiotics for bronchitis/sinisitis as well.
I do have my 15 week appointment with my OS on Wednesday but I was just wondering if anyone had a swelling like this start so far out from surgery? Seems it is smaller in the morning and gets bigger towards the evening. Any questions for the doctor would be appreciated too.
