Discussions that mention tylenol

Spinal Cord Disorders board

Well, it's over! Had ADF on 3/11. Came home yesterday afternoon. It's unbeliveable. My arm, shoulder and hand pain is completely gone. I can't believe how much better I feel. I had two tylenol in the hospital - no other pain meds at all. It just doesnt' hurt at all! Besides not being able to sleep for more than 2 hours at a time, I feel no pain. I get tired easily and have been moving around a little then resting a little.

I know that not everyone will have the same experience, but let me tell you that I was worried about this surgery for really no reason at all. I have had back surgery L4-5 8 years ago and a hysterectomy last year. The ADF was nothing like either one. Because there are no muscles injured, the pain is minimal.

For those of you scheduled for the ADF, keep your chin up and many good wishes to you all.

God Bless!!!
