Re: In need of some answeres
Hi Ellie, you're pretty fresh out of surgery and it will take time. I had my 2 level ACDF with Corpectomy on the 5th. I am a little over 3 weeks out. I came home after a 3 day stay with muscle relaxer and Percocets. That feeling of an olive, I still have it. I suppose it just takes time for everything to calm down. My neck is numb from the incision to the top of my chin so you're not alone hun. I'm sure you can call your doc and ask for some muscle relaxers. And I would't be doing any house cleaning, its still pretty early on for that. Rest and relax and let your body heal.
My left arm has been numb since my surgery so I'm on Nuerotin too.
Don't be afraid to call your doc if you have any concerns or quiestions. Good luck.
