Hey y'all I am 10 days post op L5- S1 fusion and decompression . All my leg pain and heaviness has subsided. I am concerned because above my incision site I have a large lump. It's hard to lay or recline my area feels odd a bit numb and painful but it's a dull pain. When I was in the hospital I did run a temp of 102 and the nurse asked if my back was "always that fat" my temp went down to normal the area isn't hot and the incision isn't draining anything smelly or green. Has Anyone else had anything like this?
