Surgery only fixes the anatomy of the spine and not always fixes pain within the back. Back pain after surgery can be a sign that your original back pain was not caused by the lesion in your spine which required surgery. Therefore, you need to see a specialist that can identify the origin of pain.

This condition can also be a result of the natural healing process when scar tissue puts pressure on the nerves it results in pain in the area where surgery was performed. It is not to be confused with complications from surgery, and this condition is only associated with persistent back pain.
