... s really weird. I guess what I am saying is to just keep going. You are going to feel many things going on, and I wouldn't worry about them until atleast a year after surgery. Scar tissue was a worry for me also, but I also had a neuro surgeon that said he didn't neccessarily believe that scar tissue caused pain. So who knows. ... (6 replies)
