I recently had prodisc L replacement surgery(2/27). Over the last week I have been having pain that begins at my incision and travels down to my right testicle. The pain is worse after I walk for any period of time. It is almost a pulling sensation and is a straight line of pain. Then two days ago I broke out in hives. I have no allergies and nothing in my diet has changed. I only take 1 pain pill at night now(4mg dilaudid). Anyone else have these problems recently


  • You need to see your doctor and ask them if you may have a hernia.

    It's not uncommon to have a hernia after back surgery depending on how the approached your spine.

  • I'd call the doctor and let him/her know whats going on.
