I would just like to hear from anyone that has had a similar surgery and experienced more pain postoperative. I was looking forward to cutting back and eventually discontinuing my pain meds and instead have increased them. I realize it is still early in my postoperative journey and am hoping that pasT nerve damage is to blame. I should also explain that I have Degenerative Disc Disease and arthritis which have produced bone spurs causing pinched nerves with some encroachment on my spinal column at three levels (C3-4), (C4-5) and C5-6).
Any information or advice would be appreciated
