I had ACDF on 5/20/13 and 2 discs were removed (C3-4 & 5-6). I had a horrifying 2 weeks after the surgery with pain, that my meds (morphine & oxy) did not help. Well, 4 months later I am still having neck pain. Actually, worse than before my surgery. I had to beg for physical therapy. It isn't helping. My surgeon is blowing off my concerns on my continued pain. I have yet to get a full nights sleep since the surgery because the pain wakes me up. I do not want to mask the pain, I want to end it. So, continuing to take my oxy will take care of the pain, but I cannot drive or work if I am on it (I'm a cop) and my surgeon insists I return to work because he thinks I am healed. Any suggestions on what I could ask for (possibly some testing) from my surgeon. Or should I give up on him and start over with a new spine doctor?
