I had my C7 vertebrae fused with my C6 and I must say that I feel great. 95% of what I was before I broke it skiing but, I elected to fuse it with my own bone as opposed to a dead person's. So they took a piece from the back of my hip girdle (torso).
Now, I am a passionate golfer and I love to work on my game but, when I play more than one day in a row, the spot where they took the bone, swells and, hurts, which makes golfing less enjoyable for me. My question is, what can even be done to remedy this ? I almost see it as useless to go back to the doctor. It is a spot in my body that has no movement. I am just baffled at what are my options. I do not want pain killers to be my answer.
Anyone have any advice?
Thanks in advance
