C3 - T2 Post Surgery Questions

Hi All,

I am 3 & 1/2 weeks out from surgery and today ranks as one of the worst I've have post op. My arms feel like dead weights and I've got pain down the both of them. I just feel really weak overall - not sure why. Yesterday, I started to feel so tired because I have been having trouble sleeping and had muscles that wouldn't relax. The Valium 5mg. that was prescribed by my doctor did nothing for them. When I called for a sleep aid to help me get some rest, they suggested I sleep in a recliner (I have been doing this all along) and try some over the counter sleep aid. I called my family doctor who prescribed Flexiril to assist with the muscle spasms. I took one last night and it zonked me out. I'm not sure how I'm feeling is a result of flexiril. Has anyone else used this to assist with their spasms after surgery?
