Hello I am David (48 years old living in the UK, I would welcome any advice or comments on how others have recovered from artificial disc replacement C6/C7( at present I am post operative now 10 days)
Post op day one, two and three, where good and all pain seemed to have gone, from day 5 onwards pain has returned in my shoulder this feeling like trapped nerve again , but not as bad as before ( circa 20% better).
In the last three days the back of my neck and in between my shoulder blades feel like I have seized up and are very sore when every I move my head.
Waking in the morning and getting moving is pretty sore and am having to take pain relief
If anyone has any comments on how they felt during the first three weeks I am sure it would help me deal with this and would be appreciated
Also, if I can answer any questions on how the operation went I am happy to help
