I am now 8 weeks post acdf C5/6.
At my last appointment the surgeon told me that he would change my prescription so that I would not have to come in for it. He changed my perc. 5/325 to vicodin ES 750/750. 1 every 4 hours not to exceed 5 per day. It does not seem to work as well as the lower dose perc. It doesn't last very long either about 3 hours maybe just as the perc.
Since starting them 2 weeks ago I have been getting terrible headaches at the base of my skull. I'm wondering just a coinsidence? It seems to be an awful lot of tylenol to me.
I decided not to call for something else until I see my primary Dr. on Monday. Will see what she has to say. I don't like calling the surgeons office as I never get a response until 3 days later after several call from me.
