i had mine three weeks ago (c2/3, c3/4, c4/5 and c5/6). for the last week, the pain is worse than it's ever been-- burning and searing. the percocet my doctor originally prescribed makes me sick when i take enough to affect the pain. i switched to vicodon, but that isn't doing anything. the only thing that is helping is zanaflex, which i've taken for a year in small amounts for headaches, but the amount i have to take right now puts me in a coma.
i started blogging about this whole process a few months ago if anyone wants to check it out:https://oftencrankysometimesdull.blogspot.com
