I had lumbar spinal stenosis surgery three weeks , staples out after two weeks. I have continued swelling along incision site and hot to touch. neuro-surg is recommending a second surgery to relieve swelling? Scared and confused! Any thoughts or suggestions?
I feel it is still early to jump back into surgery (especially if you are on antibiotics). I'm sure the Neuro guys would love to do a scar revision - their costs are incredible (sorry guys). If a simple scar revision is needed and doesn't involve the previous surgery or deep tissues, anyone can perform that surgery. I could do it in 30 minutes for dinner at Outbacks - followed with oral antibiotics and intraoperative irrigation with a antibiotic! Choose wisely!
