1 year post op, swelling in neck
My son was decompressed in Dec '12.  He has recently been complaining that his neck/back feels tight.  He said it doesnt hurt bad, and rarely asks for medicine for it.  Last night when he was getting out of the shower I noticed his neck looks like it has a large knot just under his incision.  (Picture posted)  His incision is healed wonderfully, so I am not sure of a couple things.
1.   Does it look normal or should I call his Dr?

2. Which Dr do I call, if any Dr should be called?  His pediatrician?  Neurosurgeon?  Neurologist?

Thanks for any help you can give me, I appreciate it!

  Hi...is the area hard?.....Does he have good ROM in his neck?.....

Since this was a yr ago that he had surgery, I can not think of nething but possible scar tissue formed....

Deff call the Dr and ask to have it looked at.

Good luck <3
