Are large Seromas 4"x2" around L3&L4 visible on X-Rays?

Aprox. Feb 19th 2018 I went in for my first Post Op after having a PLIF done Jan 25th 2018. L3 to S1joint.
They did a Monthly X-Ray. They told me " Looking good."
That night I woke at 3am with a dire FULL bladder. Realizing instantly I had wet the Bed.. Alot. That morning I went to the ER. They admitted me. I had a Huge Seroma they reported to me Pressing onto my spinal cord..  Soon later I saw my surgeon pior to prepping for surgery. I stayed in the hospital for 7 days.
My question is, Can Seromas Be Seen on the XRay that was taken the day before. It was the size of a potato basically. 4x2....
