It has been almost 4 weeks since my ACDF 5/6 surgery. I am still having alot of pain in my neck. The pain seems to be mostly in my collar bone area (on oppisite side of scar) and in the back of my neck. I am so tired and have very little energy. How long should I expect for my doctor to have me on pain medication? The thought of not having any medication for this pain is very scary. My other question is how normal is it to feel so exhausted after 4 weeks. Please help. I feel so alone. Everyone thinks I should be up and back to normal.
