Hi - I am 3 weeks post surgery, ACDF c5/6 6/7, for the first week out of surgery i actually felt pretty good, less neck pain and numbness in hands was less but the past two weeks i feel like all my original symptoms are back! Neck pain and numbness are the same as before the surgery and my hands are shaky. Surgeon tells me it's so early and I'm doing fine but I'm scared. Afraid I've gone through all this for nothing.
I'm walking 2 miles everyday and otherwise taking it easy and following drs orders. Still on vicodin and muscle relaxers.
Trying to be patient but it's hard!
Has anyone else had this experience?
