Post-op CSF bubble under incision

I was wondering if anyone has ever had a post-op CSF filled bubble about the size of an egg under their incision after surgery and then if so, did it reabsorb on it's own or did they have to put a shunt in? Also, has anyone ran a continuous low grade fever more than 6 weeks after surgery? Any info would be appreciated.

I also had an egg-sized CSF bubble.  My doctor was never concerned with it, and it did reabsorb.  Did you have it from the moment you woke up from surgery?  In my case, I woke up with it and the doctor said it probably collected there during surgery.  That said, I'm having a lot of CSF complications now.  But, I really do think that that bubble reabsorbed and was completely unrelated.
