I have had pain since 04/30/2011 due to an injury at work. In November 2012 I had an ACDF surgery. The surgery helped the arm pain & headaches, but I still have chronic pain in the neck. How long does the pain last after surgery? I also have chronic back & leg pain due to the injury and I have had epidural shots with absolutely no relief. What can be done to alleviate some of this pain? The pain is so unbearable at times & causes difficulty with walking, climbing stairs, standing and sitting. I am on pain meds but sometimes there is still no relief and I have a poor quality of life. Please someone tell me if you have had some of the same issues and if you received relief, so please tell me how.
