Is this NORMAL?
I had two laser neck and lumbar surgeries. The first neck surgery was 6 weeks ago. They stated if these didn't work I would need hardware. My pain is worse than pre-surgery now. It is at about a 7. My neck is very hot to the touch and I have a slight fever. I am concerned because the pain is much worse than it was. I know the neck takes longer to heal-I just wanted to know if this is a sign I will need a fusion, there is an infection, or if this is normal? I appreciate any feedback! Thank you
