New pain 6 weeks post-op, pls hlp
Ok simple question maybe someone can help me out. 6 weeks post op from a l4-s1 ALIF
This morning I noticed a firmiliar but new pain. As I attempted to get up this morning, I felt a sharp pain in my incision. I havent had any issues with it at all since the hospital stay. Rubbed it trying to make it go away and it seemed to make it hurt worse. It is now sensative to touch and feels alot loke a hot butter knife sticking me in the gut.
Might I have slept wrong. Putting my brace on TIGHT seems to help...pressure seems to make it feel a little better. Defication hurt bad!!!
I have my 6 week followup in 2 days. Is this something that can wait? or should i see the ER dr this morning??
any input would be apreciated.
