Distraction pain after surgery?
I just recently had Artificial Disc Replacement surgery on my C5-C6 with the pro disc. I'm about 6 weeks post op. I was wondering if anyone has been experiencing the same kind of pain I have been after going back to work?
I've heard of "distraction pain" but not exactly sure what that means.
My neck and shoulder blades get very sore. and my neck gets very stiff after 3 to 4 hours of holding my head up. Sometimes my muscles feel like they are "catching" on something when i turn my head. Hopefully this makes sense. If there's anyone out there who has had this surgery, or even a fusion I would really like to hear that this is normal and will eventually lessen after a few weeks or months. Also if you did have this sort of pain when did it start to ease up? Thank you in advance!
