Thanks for the replys, it always easing my mind a little.
I did in fact run it by the nurse yesterday and was given anti-inflammatories. I was in to see my doctor last week and ran it by him briefly but it wasn't bad last week. This week it is so much worse. I did have a longer incision and he did inform me that it is where he cut the muscle. I' sure it is the muscle I just get paranoid when I think of scar tissue building up and all. It probably is the muscle. I just wonder if it will ever end and can't figure out why it takes so long to heal. Well, I guess all I can do is wait it out!
I think it could be perfectly normal, but just to be sure, I would call and run it by the nurse or doctor. It could be the muscles swelling. I had a fusion, and mine still swells a lot and the doctor said it is the muscles. How big is your incision, if it is large the muscles might have been cut. StarAngel.[/QUOTE]
