This morning I have my first appt. with P/M Dr. I am hoping & praying for some answers. My surgeon dismissed me over a month ago told me that he has no idea why I am in so much pain, as he "fixed" my neck. Didn't want to see me again & sends me to P/M.
I am finding it very hard to sleep. I am a side sleeper. I can not sleep on my side as the pain on the sides of my neck & into myshoulders & my arms & fingers tingling. I can't lay on my back for the arms & fingers tingling so bad until it hurts. I am not sure how much longer I can put up with working either. It's hard to put on that happy public face when your in pain.
I am still taking all of my meds. I can sure tell if I take one an hour behind schedule. My ACDF c5/6 was on 08/08/08. I was assured by my surgeon that I would be better. Since then I have only gotten worse & he doesn't know why. I had xrays at 2 months & he said that I was "fully fused". I had another MRI he says looks good.
I am looking forward to this appointment so. I just want some answers. Will I get better?
Wish me luck!
