I had a discectomy and fusion of C5 thru 7 on June 8, 2009. I was slowly improving until last Wednesday when my pain increased to pre surgery levels, and it's been constant. I can't attribute it to anything I did that day.
I have been getting PT twice a week with ultrasound. the ultrasound seems to work so well I'd like to try and get a home unit, but I hear they are very expensive.
This morning I found this forum and (no offense) got a little depressed. My NSurgeon says don't worry, just a flare up and it's only been 2 + months. I'm on Vicodin and Robaxin but they don't do much since the pain jump. I was very active until this (golf, bike, workout w/weights) and now all I do is treadmill. Am I hoping for too much too early ? I have to go back to work Monday (the 17th) and will do some driving and lifting 30-40 lbs. Am I jumping the gun here ? (Am out of sick leave)
Hope I don't have to sell my new clubs !!
