I thought I'd get away with little pain after my second surgery but alas, I was wrong! Seems to be following the same path as my first surgery; two months out and my neck and area above he tippy top of the fusion (T4 I've just found out- not T3 is that better!?) is painful after only 20 minutes of looking down. If I have to read or work while looking down at a desk, the pain comes on and stays even after laying down. I don't want to rely on percocet but to be honest a small amount does help where the tylenol doesn't. Do any of you have experience with anything that helps this pain? I haven't been given and PT this time around either.
I have to remind myself that the surgeries weren't an option. It's not easy.
