11/11/11, I had Spinal Fusion/Decompression on C-5,6 and 7. They took a bone from my hip for the graft. I have a titanium plate and 6 screws in place with the graft of my bone. Currently I take 10 (15 milligram each) Oxycodone a day. It's only been 2 months since my surgery, but the pain in so intense and has gotten worse! I also smoke...understanding that the healing process is affected by nicotine. Unfortunately, I have yet to quit. BUT, I am so very concerned about the level of pain I am having...WITH all this yucky medication in me! It's absolutely horrible! I also am experiencing numbness in my hand, severe muscle spasms, pain down the arms, and occasionally experience a strange buzzing/numbness/burning in the back of my neck where the titanium plate is. I am going crazy here! Wondering if anyone has had to have another surgery so close to the first.
