Post ACDF C4-C6 pain

Had c4-C6 ACDF fusion in early October and within 5 days was off pain meds. Felt really good until just released from neck brace at 6 weeks. I'm fusing really well. Even took several trips on planes with neck brace on. Only discomfort was from some shoulder tension from the brace. So I probably overdid it, but three days out from brace and am in worse pain then before surgery and pain and burning is in same pattern. I'm so afraid it wasn't worth it. Tylenol is doing nothing and afraid of more narcotics. Would love insights.
