Still in pain

I am 7 months post Cervical Fusion surgery with 6 screws inserted. Today, I am in my pre-surgery pain. Every move I make my right side especially is critical. My neck, shoulder, lower back and arm to hand hurts. Since surgery I've inherited dizziness that goes on throughout the day, EVERYDAY! I will be returning to Pain Management in the next week or so. I've completed physical therapy but this pain now.............. Before now I was still in pain but now.... ... My right side is just as painful as it was before and after surgery. I have been diagnosed with RA/Fibromyalgia/Spondolosis (Something like that), Osteothrosis, etc. Not sure what's happening but I am sure that this is EXTREMELY painful. Glad to see I'm not alone. Ortho continues to say all is well from surgery but....they also said there's a big mass of RA under one of the sctews. My shoulder is throbbing in a very painful way and then st times both hands are numb but especially the right one. Sometimes I have no strength. What do I really do now?

  • My opinion that you should see another surgeon soon. Do some research and find a doctor that is outside your current doctors practice. Your doctors assessment and yours is too far apart to continue seeing him.
