Sever Pain

Started by Melisjc on 01/25/2019 5:37pm

Hello-
Im concerned I had my acdf neck fusion Dec 10th of 218 and the pain level is not going down. Im in great pain mostly when sleeping and it comes with a headache.
My range of motion is way better but the pain is unbelievable.
How long does the pain actually last? Doctor said 4- 6 weeks. Im thinking something is wrong.
Please any opinion of those who have been througj it
Missy

I’d suggest the possibility that part of the current pain issue mar be how you’re sleeping - flat? Head neck elevated? Side sleeper?

I’d suggest you speak with a PT and ask about a better sleep position as your pain seems to be most severe at night in bed.

Personally, I spent months sleeping in a recliner

Are you on pain meds?
