Ok...fellow spineys. here's a good question for you all. What is with the ups and downs of recovery from spine surgery? I posted a couple of days ago that it was my first day without vicoden. I was super excited and really hyped, thinking that this was going to be the norm.
I bumped my head yesterday getting into my car. Nothing major...just a little jarring. Last night I couldn't sleep more than a couple of hours at a time and that's after taking Ambien. I've been asleep on and off all day with deep aching in my neck and lower back.
This is so frustrating. Its like two steps forward and one step back!!!! Is this the norm or what? I was thinking that this little bump on my head made the differencee but it was not big thing. Hit the side of my head getting into the car and my head jerked to the right a bit. I'm hoping that it wasn't something that minor that set off all this pain again. I've been really clumsy since the surgery so I rarely go out anymore. Its been 11 weeks and this would be head bump #4.
