Forgive my new ness, but I'm desperate and not sure where to go. I had acdf c4-6 9 days ago and am in such terrible agony that I'm beginning to despair even though, after many calls to my dr, he's assured me everything I'm feeling is normal.
Despite that, the burning in my hands and arms concerns me, as well as the strange sensations if my wrist as if it were broken. Before surg my symptoms were left side.. Post op they re starting on the right .
Straight after surg I felt a lot better, but at day three post op everything began to just burn burn burn. I'm taking max pain meds and maintaining a pain level just shy of open tears. I'm taking a total of 14 pain tablets a day ( I think I need stronger, hate all the a etominophen, and am often screaming in agony at nights. Last night was bad as I think I un wittingly overdid, trying to seem some diversion at the computer. My wrists burn, fingèrs ache, forearm feels like it's cramping . I'm sure you are all familiar with this . I'm miserable.. And this pain has affected me in ways I never I imagined. It's hard to ytterbium and hard to feel much hope sometime ..I hope I didn't hurt myself with my 25 min stint at the computer. I'm do bored. I just hurt do bad and just really don't even know where to go with this post.. My poor brain is just all over the plaçe. I guess I'm just reaching out.... Desperate, is there any hope?? I seem to cry at thèdrop of a From pain mostly, but also from desperation. Can anyone offer suggestions . I ding know where to h , but I feel in my heart I NErD help
Srry for my typos. I'm on a phone. Using hands that barely work .. I just want rid of the pain
Thank you all
