I am having fusion surgery at l4-l5 next Tuesday. This past week, the back of my neck has been killing me. I feel dizzy and like I have no balance. I took vicodin last night, but I have never had this kind of feeling the day after. Do you think I might have something wrong in my cervical area, or is it just having my lower back out that is making me unable to sleep or do anything for my neck. If my husband rubs my neck i get really dizzy and feel like throwing up. Anyone have these symptoms?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.



  • had your pre-op appointment yet? if not, i would bring it up to your doc at that time...it is more than likely just stress and anxiety over the upcoming surgery, but if it continues or worsens, definately get it checked out.

    hang in there! >:D<
