Just had ACDF surgery

Hi all. Lots of years of spine issues and had ACDF procedure July 3.
Had no idea it was so complex. Tried to not take in too much before surgery. Surgery lasted almost four hours. Had to see
surgeon today as incision feels like a water balloon ...very tender. He said "probably a hematoma" but he's "not terribly concerned"....wow. I am. I've read that it's a complication that can turn in a bad direction quickly. Any thoughts on this from anyone? Thx....
