I introduced myself in the new members forum but here's the gist
5 months post op - posterior laminectomy and fusion with instrumentation of C3-C-6
Norco but not much until today...
Main drug now is just ibuprofen
Also take Clonazepam for anxiety but also helps with pain (pretty much like Valium)
Ok, I was doing fantastic at 4 months and then when 5 months hit I started to have shoulder and upper arm pain for about 2 weeks to the point I have been having trouble driving and sleeping (which is hard enough as it is). pre-op I had no right arm pain....just shoulder pain in left arm. I called Dr. but hung up because I have a PT appt. tomorrow. Has anyone experienced this and...have you been told it's just nerve pain? Makes me really nervous. Thank you!
eta: oops I think I posted this in the wrong forum...it probably belongs in Surgery Recovery....sorry, new here.
