Shoulder Pain

Hi everyone! I am 1 week post op from having ACDF on c5/6. Ive done really good I think, however I’m having terrible muscle spasms in my arms & an awful pain on the side of my neck across the top of my right shoulder! I have to remove this foam brace for a few minutes, take pain meds, & ease it back on! Is this normal??

    Horsetmom- If your pain is severe I would contact my surgeon's office to report it, you could also be experiencing some nerve pain, if so there are medications to help with that.

    Good luck and keep us posted on your progress
