Can someone help me. I just had ACDF C7-T1 two weeks ago. I have had horrible pain in my right arm, right shoulder blade, and the middle of spine near my neck. I have had two other previous surgeries, ACDF C6-7 in July 07 and Full 360 L4-L5, L5-S1 in October 2007. I have posted before, I was struck on my police motorcycle and landed on my head.
My surgeon said when he was working on my two weeks ago, the C4-5 was pretty shitty but not bad enough to take out.
Does anyone know if this is my problem. He put me on steroids this week but they have not helped. He wants to see me on Tue and thinks I may need another MRI? Any thoughts or advice. It really is painful, probably about 60 percent of my pain prior to this most recent surgery.
I am taking 3 percocets every 4-6 hours and it is really not doing much. I cannot sleep without pain I am constantly waking up and cannot get comfortable.
