I just has my 2nd acdf on Monday, had it on c/4 c5/6, my previous one was August 2017 on c5/6. This one seems to be a little different, just curious if anyone has experienced any of this before I go and ask my doctor about it. So my blood pressure was pretty low from the time I came out of surgery up until a few hours before I was discharged on Tuesday. I seemed to do fine while I was in the hospital, tired which is normal. I got home and seems to be ok, sore and tired, my husband got my meds that evening and him and my boys make sure I take them on time. I have a lot of support, my family is awesome. But Wednesday morning I woke up I was in the worst pain, I could barely get out of bed. I just started vomiting non stop. There was this piercing pain in the forehead that wouldn't go away, and after awhile I realized that is what was causing the vomiting because if I didn't move I was fine but if I got up and moved at all it would start and I was vomiting again. I tried to stay hydrated, but it was almost impossible. Finally yesterday my husband's step-dad was able to pick me up some zofran which helped out bit . The problem I'm having now is falling asleep all day, maybe some people wouldn't think it's a problem, but llI' be in the middle of sending a text and fall alseep, reading an article or even talking to someone on the phone and fall asleep. I don't even realize it. Not just that but I have double vision, I have to close one eye in order to read something correctly and I'm just so weak, walking to the bathroom is exhausting and it's not very far at all. I'm doing eveythingnim suppose to, so I don't understand. Thanks for listening, Stephanie
