Incision Discomfort 6 Weeks Post Multi Level Fusion

I'm six weeks post op lumbar fusion L3,4 and 5. My incision healed up nicely and looks great. However, whenever I stand up it feels so tight , and like it's being tugged on from the inside. Not painful really, just heavy and very uncomfortable . Dr checked it out yesterday at my six week check up, says it's normal . But I'm curious if anyone else experienced anything similar.





  • Sure, I had that tight feeling as well.  Also, severe itching from the narcotics which irritated the incision area. That stopped after going off of the narcotics.  

    Glad you are healing well~just give it some time.
