This April will be a year that I had my surgery. C3-4-5-6-7. I am not fully recovered. I still can't sit, stand, type, clean house, etc. for long periods of time. I have problems sleeping (snore) and swallowing (bread and meats) When I saw my surgeon this week, he said "all went well" you're fusing great and you don't need to see me anymore. But, I still have pain, numbness and tingling in my right arm. My right shoulder started hurting again 6 weeks after surgery. I go to PT 3xs a week and walk everyday. My mobility is fine until I turn my neck fast (without thinking) and I can hear a loud pop. Now he wants me to start seeing my pain management doctor again, to rule out muscle problems. This is very frustrating for me, has anyone had a long recovery after surgery?
