Hi All

4 1/2 weeks post surgery and today I felt a sharp pull under where the incision was.Since then the incision area is sore if I move a certain way.

What could this mean ?

I am very anxious in relation to the possibility of reherniation

Any advice appreciated 





  • Welcome DonnaMc1 we’re glad you’re here!

    I have had 4 micro's and have had the pain you describe a couple of times, in my case it was nothing but part of the healing process, but if this is new and continues I would contact the surgeons office and talk to them about it
