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!
