Swelling within the cord is unusual. Not sure what you mean by that. Changes can occur in the cord from injury, either trauma, disc herniation or stenosis that some might call swelling. This is referred to as myelomalacia. This doesn't always change appearance after surgery. Presumably, you are not doing well from your surgery or you wouldn't have had another mri. Get a 2nd opinion.

There are multiple potential causes. It still might be residual from what you had before surgery, there may be continued compression, or have been a surgical complication. Your surgeon would be the best to interpret the meaning of the study based upon your individual case. Thank you for your question.
