I am in recovery from my first surgery ever, which happens to be a C6/7 fusion with autograft. Had my surgery last Thursday.
Feeling pretty tender still, as I'm sure I should. It does seem a bit odd to me though, that I am starting to feel worse now that I did the first couple days out of the hospital.
I really just wanted to stop and say hi, and that I really enjoy reading all that I can about what I should be expecting during my recovery. As of now, I am on Percocet 5-325, Vistaril, and taking a calcium suppliment along with a mens daily vitamin. I am unsure what the maximum number of the Percocets I can take, but I am taking between 6-8 a day to cope with the pain.
Any advise would be appreciated with stretches I can do, or other pain relief ideas anyone has.
C-6/7 fused. Sever lumbar and cervical degeneration.
