    You know why you read negative posts and not may positive ones?
    Because who comes on Health Boards? People in need, people in pain and who cant find the answers why they are not going well.
    People who recovered well, who are doing great are back to work and their normal life. It's us, who are still in pain, who suffer to no end still posting, looking for answers and sharing our experiences.
    Don't get discouraged by that, you are doing great and I love your attitude!
    Very important through all this pain and limitations to see light at the end of the tunnel...

    Are you on any opioids? Do they work?

    OK, rest and heal

    Re: c5/c6 c6/c7 surgery

    yeah i been resting ALOT... i walk around the house every now and then still got pain though, so i am taking meds. i just got off my morphine 2x a day so now i am on soma for the spasms every 8 hrs and hydrocodone every 4 hrs... i still take those regularaly. my spasms come and go, the worst are at night before i fall asleep. i did not have to wear a collar at all and my range of motion is improving day by day. i do however feel like a lump in my throat almost as like i can feel the plates in my neck but the soreness from the breathing tube is gone. i am blessed however tho with the family and friend support i have making it much easier to deal with
