Re: meds question
I can honestly say that my husband was pain free after his two level neck fusion. He was sore from the incision, but all nerve pain was gone. He took less than ten of the pain pills that he was given in the six months since his surgery.
We fully understood that the surgery was not to stop the pain, but to stabilize the spine. We did not expect him to be pain free. But, to our amazement, he is painfree.
We were out of town this weekend, when a guy asaulted him, pushed him down and tried to rob him. Hopefully, he is okay. We are getting X-rays this week. But, he said that his neck is not hurting him. He has a lot of scrapes and bruises, though.
