Re: Two months since ACDF - advice about drugs
Drugs such as that many times help nerve pain, you could ask to try Tegretol-XR, that should not make you feel drugged or tried.
Also taking some thing like cellbrex with it should also help, if it really is nerve pain a small dos of the fentanyl patch should help, at this point though I'm sure they are trying to see what happens.
Kind of what I told my dad who had a operation a few months ago, he said the pain meds didn't help all that much, and I pointed out he want to know if some thing is going wrong.
So taking away all the pain is not the smartest thing to do, just get it to where you can live with it, 2 months is not very long for healing, you need to get your self up and doing things.
You can't just worry about it all and thinks it's going to go away, start doing stuff just don't over do it that will help you more then anything, yes it will be hard at first but it should keep getting easier.
