Re: Post ACDF nerve pain
HI this Dec will be 2 years when I had my 2 level ACDF. Yes, the more active you are after surgery may cause the symptoms. It was a good 6 months before I did much. Going to PT at the 2 month mark caused similar symptoms. At the 8 month mark I was in really good shape. Then I was rear ended and back in horrible shape. I tired Lyrica and could not tolerate it either. Definitely talk to surgeon. Sometimes when you carry yourself differently then other areas of the body create and it is a dominion effect. Your entire spine is connected so if due to the ACDF you move differently then your lower back may be compensating and therefore causing different issues. Good luck.
