Re: Spasms and not wearing a collar
it took me a lonnng time before my spasms completely disappeared, and I had a less invasive procedure than most of you. my doctors told me that the spasms were part of the nerves healing, and that the longer you had the condition that prompted the surgery, the longer it would take.
I was on FLEXIRIL for spasms for probably 4 months post surgery...
I am nearly 7 months post op, and if I stand for too long- for example, 2-3 hours at a music venue, where the floor is concrete- my neck still gets a little tight/sore. I usually come home and ice it down, and the next day I'm back to normal.
