Strong pains after Laminectony/Discectomy

    I have never had surgery to specifically remove scar tissue, however it was removed in conjunction with my fusion surgeries.

    My understanding is that scar tissue will form after surgery, some patients seem more likely than others to have a problem, physical therapist have ways to help with ultrasound and exercises, but once there is a problem, you will most likely need to have it removed.

    I have a condition (keloids) where I scar very easily.  All my surgery scars are quite pronounced.   It has gotten worse over time.

    The scar from the plastic surgery to cover a deep 3rd burn eschar is still very dark and pronounced.   That was almost 7 years ago.  The scar for my quadruple bypass heart surgery is very pronounced and is raised , dark and red.

    The deep/soft tissue massage person I seen, had been trying to reduce some of that scar.   But its over a year old and really nothing can be done.  My psychiatrist, says I could have surgery to remove that large scar, but then I will be left with just another scar

    A keloid is an abnormal proliferation of scar tissue that forms at the site of cutaneous injury (eg, on the site of a surgical incision or trauma); it does not regress and grows beyond the original margins of the scar.

  • Obviously I'm talking about epidural fibrosis, @challenger , did the fibrosis you had earlier cause you more problems after the fusion procedure? @dilauro , you talked about the scars on your skin right?

  • Ghunz

    I have been lucky, after the last fusion I have not been bothered by it, but I do my nerve glide exercises every morning and night

  • @challenger before the fusion surgery, instead, did you have pains related to epidural fibrosis?  if so, which ones?

  • Can severe back, neck and arm pains depend on epidural fibrosis? Every morning I wake up with a severe cervical pain, when I look down, my upper back hurts a lot and if I stretch my arms it hurts me
