ACDF 5 months ago still in pain

I had a ACDF C5-C7 back in May 2013. I am still in daily pain in my upper back, just as I was before the operation, and my neck pains/migraines are becoming more regular. Should I still be in this much pain, 5 months down the road?


  • When did you last see your surgeon? What has he said about the ongoing pain that you are having? It would be difficult for anyone here to guess what the cause of the ongoing pain you are having is caused by but yes it is possible that it could be considered normal depending on what the cause was of your need for surgery.
    If you do not have an appointment scheduled soon for a visit with your surgeon, it might be time to make one and see what he thinks at this time.
