Just had a lumbar microdiscectomy

Hello, Im new here, first time posting:)  I had a lumbar microdiscectomy L5-S1 9 days ago, and pretty much overall feel pretty amazing. But today I woke up and had some blood on my sheets from incision. I had no staples or stitches just the glue. Also no bandage or anything. My incision seems to feel pretty sore today also, but I have no fever, its not hot or really Red looking, it just seems like perhaps glue is coming off and maybe while sleeping its rubbed and caused the bleeding??? Idk what is normal or if Maybe I should gonto ER Im panicking now that its gotten infected or?? If anyone has any input to offer that would be great! Thanks



  • Welcome Crystal, I think you need to call your surgeons office, it's probably nothing but a little residual blood but better safe than sorry so make that call and see what they have to say. Good luck

    That would seem more normal a couple of days after surgery.  I would contact your surgeon's office to discuss it.  They would be in the best position to tell you what you should need to do or what it could be
