Have had surgery from C3-7. Have developed anterolisthesis at C2-3, with occipital neuritis. Headaches are 24/7 and quite severe. Also, neural foraminal osteophytes have grown back at all levels previously cleaned out by surgery. Am advised to wear cervical collar more often. Am on strong meds and have to take naps now every afternoon to cope with pain. Any advice in coping? PT is out - have tried it many to no avail. Cannot cope with any time of exercise of the arms or neck.
