Today is 8 days past my surgery,by far it has Ben the worst as far as pain.
I awoke at 130 am suffering w pain in back of neck and down my arms which was gone post op.
My wife says it is because I am trying to do too much,just cleaning up around house,make dinner etc,it's not like I am painting or digging holes.
Today I did nothing accept sit on computer,take sleep from 1130 / 330
It seems like even med isn't helping too much.
I thought maybe from cigarettes I used to smoke 2 packs a day and really have not smoked in the 8 days,save for a couple of small cigars not inhaled and few drags of 3/4 cigs I had for 911 .but I have Ben doing ok.
Even my throat is shutting me today,hard to swallow,like first day.
Any opinions,I have read that 3 level surgery is most difficult .
You will know the true benefits of life,by helping someone who can never repay you!
