Tomorrow I'll be 8 weeks out from a 1 level ACDF. Things were going ok till about 2 weeks ago once I started back to work part time. The pain I'm in is getting worse, to the point I might have to go back out on leave. The pain is both nerve and the back of my neck. I still take Vicodin 5/500 but usually only right before bed so I can get some sort of sleep . The past couple/few days I've had to take it during the day as well. Talked to the surgeon on Friday and he put me on 800mg Ibuprofen. The pain had continued to get worse over the weekend. Guess I'll have to call again tomorrow and ask for something else, but I don't know what else is out there. They asked if I had any preference (for nsaids) but I have no idea, any suggestions?
