I had a POSTERIOR CERVICAL CECOMPRESSION FUSION 11 1/2 weeks ago and had my first post surgery appointment with NS. He showed me before (instability) and after x-rays and now my spine is straight. 3 rods and screws. I still have some pain but not as bad.
One thing I am not sure of is he wants me to stay off celebrex for another 2 or 3 mts. I already have been off almost 3 mts. He said it takes a long time to heal. Does this sound normal? Anyone else hear this before? thank you jinky
