Has anyone ended up with severe shoulder pain after a surgical procedure? I believe it is from surgical positioning, as I did not have this or any type of shoulder pain before my 2-level acdf.
I did see my surgeon last week because the pain was so horrible and he thinks it is muscular from the surgical procedure. It the mean time, he precribed a Voltaren gel for the pain, which does not help in the least.
The pain is not getting worse, but it is not getting any better.
Has this happened to anyone else. How long do the pain last and what didyou do to resolve it?
