It is comforting to know there is a whole network out there.
After nearly 20 years with neck pain, I resolved to take more aggressive action and just days ago I had C4-C6 fusion surgery. I have been seeing chiropractors for pain and discomfort for many years, and credit them for extending the time without surgical intervention.
Before surgery, I relied on Mobic, Tylenol, Soma, ice, heat, sauna, and exercise to keep my pain in check. I finally had an MRI which showed "Spur Complex C5-6" for starters and lots more.
Now, after surgery, I am experiencing much pain due to radiculopathy.
Can the group make suggestions about sleep positions with the neck brace? I am desperate to find the right combination of position and pillow and any observations will help.
