I am 6 weeks post op c5-7 w/ hardware. I have started going back to work (desk job w/ a lot of typing). I never really stopped working just did a "lighter load" from home for the first 4 weeks. I went full time Monday and Tuesday and am severely paying for it today. I have had to constantly use ice while sitting at my desk. I have severe pain in the back of my neck and my shoulder blade. Today i have barely been able to function and the pain is almost intolerable. Just wanted to see if you all thought I have over done it or if I should be concerned about damage. I have had a severely hard time staying still since the first few days postop though my doctor told me to do anything I can except for coasters and jumping off of boats. Obviously I am not able to do a lot but I have pushed myself pretty hard. Today is a huge disappointment and now I am extremely nervous. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!!
