I have had back surgery and no swelling. How ever I do have swelling in my legs from edema. or Lymphedema. I cant say for yours but mine is from a bad liver.I would just about bet your swelling is not from your back. You do need to get it checked out because it meens there is something else wrong. Maybe something as simple as to much salt in your diet or something much more serious.
