Have not posted in a while. Had two level acdf three months ago. Surgery had complications with meds in IV. I felt better initially but have been regressing. Other posts in Neck pain are similar. I have gone back to work but cant seem to do my job. It is physical but not horrible. My neck hurts so bad at end of day. Went to pain management appointment last week and started steroid dose pack. Still taking pain pills and muscle relaxers. I know three months is not long but I was hoping for more. I need to take another month or two off work. I live in the real world and as I have already taken three months off this could be the end of my job. I have bills to pay just like everyone else.
Not really sure what to do. As of now I am toughing it out each day. Steroids helping but I know when pack is done I will be right back to bad pain. I hate degenerative disc disease. I hate pain and I am sick of hurting. I am also tired, pain really takes it out of you. Thanks for listening.
