    Hello Doctor,

    2 weeks tomorrow since XLIF. Having normal recovery, seroma, nerve/numbness in thigh.

    I also noticed when I tense my abdominal muscles, the side that the surgery was on bulges rather than contracts. I read this is a pseudohernia likely due to denervation during surgery.

    In your experience, do they usually self resolve?

    They can self-resolve but I don’t know the % that will improve with time. Normally, nerve injuries will take between 3-6 months to improve.

    Dr. Corenman
