Hi, I had a cervical C7 Foraminotomy on Jan 4th. I have dealt with the usual post-surgery aches and pains fairly well. But, about a week ago I started getting a "burning" sensation in my shoulder muscle, the muscle that runs across the top of the shoulder into the side of the neck. It's so intense! I have an appointment to see a Physio next week, my GP thinks it may help! But, what can I do in the meantime? I am taking a whole bunch of medications, including morphine and NSAID's. Nothing seems to work for more than an hour.
If anyone has any ideas/suggestions as to how to ease the pain, please comment.
