Hi I am new here and looking to see if my experences are normal. I had c4-c7 diskectomy and fusion with donated bone. The surgery went well but had a lot of pain after but it slowly got better. I still have severe pain and swelling about every 3 weeks. Is this normal? I still have severe head pain 2x a week and some neck pain most of the time but it is better than it was prior to surgey. I am wondering about others surgery outcomes?
