I had acdf on Jan. 9th 2009. It was successful, but now am noticing a lump on the back of my neck in the area of the fusion. I was wondering if anyone else who has had this surgery has noticed the same thing? If so PLZ reply I am worried. Thanks


  • I have a lump also, above my fusion L5/S1. I went for my 6 week check up and asked the doc about it. He said that it may just be fluids from the surgry that the body hasn't absorded yet. I know I was really worried when I noticed mine. Its alittle sore, but I can live with it. You should check with your doctor to ease your mind. Good luck and let me know how it turns out.
