I am 3 and a half weeks post-op on a L5-S1 micro-discectomy (disc herniated mostly left side), and have recently discovered that I have swelling in my lower back, directly to the left of my incision.
I had a fairly considerable lump on the incision for about 2 weeks, which has reduced, but now this other swelling has me a little concerned.
It feels a little hot and sore to touch. I am just concerned because one swelling went down, while this one has increased. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
