I need your help and opinions once again. I had my surgery on August 3rd, 2010 and the last 2 days the pain in my neck and shoulders seems to be getting worse. I am taking percocet 5/325 2 tabs 4 times a day and the pain is still there. Before surgery I was taking percocet 1 tab 4 times a day.
They said this was a surgery that shouldn't have much pain so I guess I'm concerned that maybe I'm just being a whimp. I have been doing the dr's orders hot showers, neck excercises, no lifting etc...
I am debating if this is urgent enough to call my NS and ask for help like stronger pain meds. I am looking for advice wether that is a good idea or if I should just try to tough it out. I know you may think it should be an easy decision, but for me it isn't. Please offer any opinions you have. All comments will bre appreciated.
