URGENT- Incision four weeks after discectomy & laminectomy!
I am a 32 yr. old female that just had back surgery four weeks ago, almost a four inch incision was made up my spine. Now, about three weeks after surgery I got severe headaches for three to four days in-a-row, these were worse than a migraine. So, I called my doctor to see if they were a possible spinal fluid leak issue, he assured me it couldn't be. He claimed that one only get's them after few days after surgery. Now, it's been four weeks and after panicking and having to go to the ER for these headaches they gave me fluids and a steroid and sent me hoe- no more headaches. BUT- my incision four weeks later is still so hard and puffy( about a 1/2') away from my normal skin, it is very puffy & hard-IS THIS NORMAL four weeks later. I asked my doctor but a nurse told me it was fine, I'm scared I may be ignoring something.
