Day 6 Post Op, 2 level 456

Afternoon.   I had my ACDF on Thursday 30 June.   I was losing use in left arm and had constant pain across shoulders.  I was a chicken for 8 years before I realized I could not put it off anymore.  Now my shoulders are killing me, hoping it is the decompressing of nerves, rest feels pretty good. Sore throat feeling is gone.  Doc prescribed Lyrica for nerve pain, seeing some relief there.
