I had a left lumber microdiscectomy done on Monday, October 7th. After the surgery I developed pain just below the left knee cap. This is a new pain that I did not have before surgery. It feels like my knee was smacked with something and it appears to have some bruising. The pain gets worst when walking. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I told my nurse in the hospital and she thought that during surgery there was not enough padding under my knee during the surgery. So I asked my surgeon about it during his rounds and he kind of blew it off.
