Acdf C5/C6 pain returning

I'm sure my starting to worry is due to the fact that after my surgery my pain has been a 0 or 1 at the most. I am 3 weeks out and still taking muscle relaxers and just walking to keep mobile. I did not have to wear a collar of any sort and was happy about that. I still have tingling/numbness on my right arm but till yesterday my pain had been gone. In addition to the arm, neck and shoulder pain relief I have had, is a more than 20 year pain and hunched over issue radiating down my entire  back is gone. That is wonderful. I feel so blessed for the relief I have experienced since my surgery. My question is, how normal is it that I am starting to experience pain, not as bad as before, 3 weeks after my surgery. It kept me up all night and I'm concerned.

    hello uncleted !

    curious if you have ask your doctor about the return of the pain? i'm sure he would be interested in knowing how you are doing.

    other members with shared experiences may respond with their experiences and their "norms". but please remember everyone is so individual and best way to check the "norm" for you is to double check with doctor. he would be best to guide and or reassure you.

    using the search may be helpful to you. you may be led to the medical side with formal medical articles and videos re your surgery and what to expect.
