i had my acdf on the 4th to the c5-6, i awoke to ten times the amount of pain i had prior to the surgery but in the c7-L 2,3 AREA. so bad in fact that the morphine pump was like getting an asprin (1.5mg every 6 min) as well as 2mg every 2 hours for breakthrough pain. I pleaded with my anesthesia doc to give me something else but they didnt. So i suffered thru the night. I am home now and i am still having 8-9 out of 10 pain all the time in the c7- L2 or 3 level although i am takin perc 10 every 4 hours and of course cant swallow.. i alternate from crying to just being miserable.has this been anyone elses experience?
