I had my l4-s1 fused. They went in through my stomach. I'm not sure what the feeling should be when the dr told me you'll have the pain from everything moving back into place my stomachs been hurting but not normal stomach pain. Also under my incision is a lump the size of a golf ball that sticks out. It doesn't hurt to touch but it's just there. What could that be? I had very bad bruising and swelling from below my incision all the way down my thighs and privates. I also had very bad bruising all the way down my thighs and privates. Anyone else had this happen? Today I noticed when I press near my incision it looks like my stomachs a water bed. It's like theres fluid loose and just moves under neath the skin. I've been having bad pain on my left side of my stomach and also having pain in my calfs when standing still or in place. Lastly the pain that I've been having from my lower spine all the way down the back side of my right leg. If anyone els has had anything like this or any of these symptoms it would be great to get some input. I have a dr apt this coming Friday but I would like to know if Iantone else has had these symptoms as well.

    I am not familiar with your symptoms, but I would be very interest in what you doctor had to say about it.
