I had ACDF C5/6 one year ago and am still dealing with a lot of symptoms. Very tight neck muscles and a lot of pain. I've been on 15 mg MS Contin three times daily and Vicodin for breakthrough pain for about 4 months now. It seems to help. Because of a recent flare, I am back in PT. Doctor has now ordered a bone scan because he is suspecting that I have other issues including facet joint problems. My question is....how many of you out there have still been struggling with pain and limitations a year later.
