I had my surgery on March 28th of this year. I felt so much relief from all the symptoms I have dealt with for years. However, I started 2 weeks after surgery with the sensation of a huge bulge under my incision like I was wearing a fanny pack back there. I have had sweating over that area for the first month post-op and I was checked by my surgeon at 8 weeks and he did not feel any need to look into it. It is still there three months now and I asked my VA provider for an x-ray. The report is the same as before surgery except it mentions "lucency noted in the mid portion of the L5 vertebral body which may represent laminectomy changes" and to "correlate clinically". I haven't found anywhere where that is explained and my provider has yet to call me back on the results. Does anyone here know what that means?
