Discussions that mention tylenol

Spinal Cord Disorders board


Okay guys..on my 3 1/2 week mark...I just got so discouraged these past few days...and wondered...I am on only tylenol extra strength, and Ibuprofen..but..I am still achy in upper neck/back...dr. told me at 2 week postop that I do not need my brace only in the car..but have found that wearing it makes me more comfortable. But...how many of you are still on pain pills and going on with your life? I am not out and about yet, not even making it to the store...of course the way my hair looks and no makeup does not make me want to be out and about....How long does recovery take? I had no idea it would be this tough...I am not exaggerating, I am feeling discouraged, though I believe God has this all under control...please tell me...are others regretful for the operation of their cervical spine??????? Thanks...needed to vent...husband has been having it a lot lately....smile...
