I am 3 months post-op. I have fusion of c4-c7, w/cadiver bones and plate.
Of course I am still in pain, still have muscle spasms,and still waiting for my right arm and thumb to stop throbbing. My question is, NOW I have started having a terrible time getting up when I lay down. It hurts both sides of my neck and it almost feels impossible for me to get my head off the pillow. I rollover to the side of the bed and try to get up, but the pain is horrible. Is this normal???
