In brief: ?blisters

How extensive of a surgery did you have? Did you have adhesive tape covering for an extended period of time? Have you had the chicken pox or shingles? Have you reported this to your surgeon? You should.

In brief: No, not usually,

Unless you are applying heat to your back and maybe burning the area as you may have some decreased sensation from the surgery.
