I am 10 years past my 3rd ACD&F surgeries (C4/5; 5/6; 6/7). I have always been physically active - sports etc. But, for the past almost 10 years, I have been in constant pain where the only relief is for me to lie down in my bed. No way to enjoy my new grand children! I have tried facet injections, massage, acupuncture, physio etc etc and NOTHING provides any long term relief. I have bought devices such as massagers, TENS machines, neck extenders et al. I am not looking for any sympathy, just some suggestions as to 1: how to relieve my pain and 2: warnings to those who may want to have neck (ACD&F) surgery. (NOTE: ACD&F means Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion) Thanks to all who have shared and provided suggestions to we (the sometimes called Histrionic Personality Disorder affected people) who endure continued chronic neck (or any other) pain. I would greatly appreciate any (non-commercial) suggestions as to how best to deal with this ongoing pain and enjoy my grandchildren. Thank you for your attention and suggestions!
