I had my ACDF August 17th and was recovering fine until Monday, when I woke up with shooting pains from both knees to my ankles. I can barely walk in the mornings.
Now, two days later, most of the pain is concentrated just in my knees and seems to be getting worse.
I had stopped taking any pain meds as of last week but just took 2 oxycodone, 1 tramadol and 1 gabapentin, which seems to be taking the edge off a little bit.
I've also tried elevation and ice.
Could this be related to neck surgery? Seems so bizarre!
