Hi all,
Need some input please this is way worse then I could of ever expected.
Had acdfsurgery monday night with a cage no bone just artificial piece (is what the dr told hubby) of c4-7 the pain is so so bad. The back of my neck where procedure was done is burning like an SOB. My throat is so sore with a big lump feeling can bearly get anything down even with a straw and mouth is so dry I wake up feeling like am gasping for air.
Dr has me on perc's and valium to sleep (not working)
Is all this normal? When can I expect to feel any better at all? Sorry to dump on you guys. Just been in tears for two days afraid something is not right.
Thanks for listening any in put greatly appreciated.
