SOME CONCERNS RECENTLY:
I didn't mention the other day when I posted - honestly, I thought it might go away, but it hasn't. I did receive my soft collar last week Monday (the 26th) after wearing a hard ASPEN collar for 12 weeks. About 5 days now I have had almost daily headaches and my neck below C6/C7 and shoulder = specifically my left one (the pain I had prior to ACDF) has returned with a vengeance.
The only difference is instead of it going down the BACK of my arm, it goes down the front. It's pretty bad and I have reverted to taking my Oxycodone yesterday and I only have 3 left! I know I want to call for a refill, but I just don't know if I should mention this or not since he did say after surgery I might have a reoccurrance of my symptoms and he said this would be normal - but is it NORMAL almost 14 weeks after surgery? Thanks.
