The pain that got me in this predicament in the 1st place is back and back with a vengeance.
I had another ACDF w/hardware on C6-C7 on the 17th. The pain in my left arm is gone but the pain in the lower left of my neck is back & it's worse than before surgery. It feels like someone has a pressure point hold on me (you LE people should know what I'm talking about
). It's annoying. Percocet & Flexiril are taking the edge off. I go for my 2 week follow-up tomorrow with NS.
I also now have aquired a new pain in my right arm that goes into my elbow. Someone please tell me this is all normal for 2 weeks post-op. I don't remember ANY of this after my 1st surgery. Thanks! :O)
