Hi, This is all new to me. I have been in pain from an auto accident for the past 2 years and finally after many, many injections and procedures I had surgery on Aug 29. So I am a week out in recovery..... The throat pain is almost gone, but lots of spasms. I had a fusion of c,6-7, and a afdr of c,5-6 and afdr c,3-4. This is the first of many.... I also have 2 ruptures in the thoracic and 1 in my lower lumbar. We just started working on my neck and head first.... So far no more head pain!!!! That is a real blessing. But there is still very sharp pain in the shoulder blade areas that hurt when I breathe. I just feel like I'm the only one going through this-and I have a loving husband and 3 wonderful children who have been very, very patient. So if there is any advise please let me know..


  • Your at the right place. I also have a very supporting and understanding family, but this is a great place for information and compassion from people going through simular emotions and pain.

    Glad to see you join this site, I've only been a member for a couple of weeks and it has been great for me. take care and good to hear your surgery has helped your head pain.
  • Hiya,

  • I am so glad to know that you are feeling some relief and I would say that is a step in the right direction. 1 week is still very early out from that type of surgery so don't get discouraged. Hopefully as you heal you will get more and more relief. I am glad that you found our forum as there is usually always someone here to listen and support you that truly understands your pain. Good luck and please keep us posted on your progress.
