Spinal surgery: Go back and see the surgeon who operated on you and be reassessed. There are many reasons why this may be going on.

Get checked!: Given the somewhat recent operation, seeking quick care with your surgeon is appropriate to rule out infection or hematoma or pseudomeningocele. No fever clues away from infection but deep spinal infections can be insidious.
