is it safe for my back to pop after surgery

I am 1 week post l4-l5 microD surgery and have been feeling my lower back pop if I stretch or move a certain way. It does not cause me any pain. Is this normal?

    But if it continues and does make you worry, contact your doctor to discuss it.

    Personally, I would just chalk it up as post-op items, keep an eye on it and see if this continues in a week or so and how it continues.

    When something happens once or twice, I tend to jot it down, but not pay much attention to id. When it starts to happen more often, I begin to think about it. When it becomes something I think about all the time, its time to talk it over with your doctor.
