Pain after Back Surgery

What is Pain After Back Surgery?

Pain after back surgery (also called failed back surgery syndrome) is when the surgery did not fix an existing problem or has created other problems, and you continue to experience pain. Sometimes the pain is worse after the surgery than before it.

There are many reasons for pain after back surgery. The most common reason is that the condition was not identified properly so the surgeon did not fix the problem.
