I am 5 days post-op, I posted earlier this week about all the pain I was having. I am still in pain but each day it is easing just a little bit but atleast I can manage the pain now.
My new questions is to see if any of you have ever suffered a blood clot after surgery ot pneumonia? (excuse spelling)
My throat was sore the day of surgery, they told me it was from the breathing tube, I have been getting a runny nose etc since then and felt like I was just coming down with a head cold.
Late this afternoon I started getting really bad chest pain, I am loosing my voice and feel very tired and just under the weather, I have a low grade fever, nothing too high.
I just was wondering if anyone else suffered with any of these symptoms after their surgery and what signs I should watch for. I have no leg swelling or pain, I am not walking like I should be as I just feel so poorly but I wiggle my toes alot and move my ankles.
I will put a call into my doc tomorrow just to be on the safe side, hopefully its nothing more than a cold that will dry up in a few days although I am starting to get a cough too! Lucky me!! LOL
Thanks for listening, not looking for medical advice, I will call my doctor for that but just curious about similar experiences after spinal surgery.
