I am have servere right upper back and shoulder blade area pain, I have c4-7 surgery Dec. 9th, anterior cervical diskectomy, fusion, partial corpectomy and insstrumentation. I called my doctor office Monday and they said it's normal. I don't like taking hydrocodone and flexerl. My wife started to massage this area twice a day, but it hasn't improve the problem.
After the surgery the doctor told my wife "my bones were a lot weaker than he expected" What does that mean? Will it slow my bones from fusion? I don't like tell my freinds I still hurt, My head tells me I should be a lot better that I feel.
