It is almost: impossible to diagnose a skin rash without direct visual and/or tactile examination. Please see a healthcare provider for proper examination and diagnosis then treatment. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.

A few things : This depends on the examination. This depends on what activities you're doing when it occurs. In the back you have muscles, bones, joints, discs, bursas, tendons and ligaments. Any of these alone or together can cause symptoms. Your evaluation will clarify this.

Depends on u & type: This depends on the type of surgery done and what condition you are in at the time of surgery and whether there were any complications with the surgery. For an outpatient microdisectomy, it can range from activity restriction for several weeks and some home exercises to a full fledged physical therapy program of at least 6 weeks with a more involved surgery like a multilevel fusion.

My wife has a boil behind her back. Sometimes, the boil will swell and contained pus. We think egg consumtion caused this. Is it possible?

No: A boil is an infection from an organism on the skin. There are also glands that can become occluded and these sebaceous glands will drain a malodorous thick material but they are not always infected. See your doctor for treatment but not related to eggs.
