Since about three weeks post op I have a lump on my back. It is difficult to wear clothes with a normal waistband and more painful to sit in chairs with my back against the backrest. I feel like something is poking through my skin. I still have all the numbness and sciatic pain that I had pre surgery and it seems to be getting worse. I am now 11 weeks post surgery. The neurosurgeon's assistant saw me at the follow up and said that the bump was fluids and the X-rays were normal. I went to the radiologist and asked for a copy of the x-Rays and it looks like the screws in the L4 are now in far enough if at all. I realize that I'm not a doctor but I would like to have other peoples opinions of what they think.
Is there a way to upload a photo on this forum?
