New Cricks Post ACDF surgery

Started by bmleon on 02/25/2019 11:57pm

Anyone have new cricks or pain that won’t go away months after ACDF surgery? I’m just over six months post surgery and I woke up with a crick in my neck last week that will not go away. I happened to see my orthopedic referring doctor (she so happens to be my daughter’s doctor as well) a day or two after it started.. She said if I’m not better in a week or two I need to come back in. I am on day six of a crick so bad that I can’t even turn my neck to the right. This is how the last one started that led to a C6-C7 ACDF fusion. I am freaking out. Until this week I’d had three follow up appointments with the neurosurgeon and he said everything looked great. I was evening get stronger and started to resume lifting weights. I have not been lifting heavy and actually hadn’t lifted in 4 days when this crick came on. I’m praying I just slept wrong.
