I utilized the old spine health and it was a great benefit. Just want everyone to know that the NS said as he was doing the surgery my l arm/nerve was so irrritated it kept jumping off the table. I feel so much better today. Last week was the pits it felt like I had swallowed a golf ball.And had diff. with the pain med and muscle relaxers but that has subsided and I am eating ok. small portions but it is staying down. Pain has decreased dramaticaly. Just taking occas hydrocodone and soma now. no collar since 1st post op day.In hosp. 2 days . Glad to be on the other side. For me this was the best thing I could have done. the severe arm and shoulderblade pain really 10+ is a 4-5.
