I am soooo frustrated and tired of pain. I didn't sleep at all last night due to the arm pain and the pins/needles sensation in my leg, and I did take my sleeping meds. I am almost 3 weeks post op for my cervical fusion. I called the office this morning and finally got to talk to the PA this afternoon. The arm pain they are not overly concerned about yet due to how compressed the nerves were and I was told I'd probably have the pain for a while. Which I guess the pain is better then the paralysis I had when I awoke from surgery. But there is concern about the leg issue and so I have an appointment tomorrow with the surgeon who did the lumbar fusion (same office as the surgeon for my cervical). Until my appointment I am on only Tylenol, which is not helping. I really do not need to have any thing more going on with my back. I found out at the beginning of Sep that my job is being eliminated at the end of Feb 2011, so I need to be looking for a job. UGH, I think I'm just over tired. Thanks for letting me vent.
