Dr's and patients speak different languages.
At my six week post-op. check-up, I told the surgeon that the pain was managable but as soon as I do anything, laundry, vacuuming, dishes, ect. The pain becomes almost unbarable. He tells me to take it easy as it takes time, that the C,6-7 isn't fused yet and what I'm feeling is the bone graft moving. Then he asks me what I think about work! REALLY!!! Maybe I didn't explain myself well when I said, "as soon as I do ANYTHING."
Any advice on how to make myself understood when speaking with my Dr. would be appreciated.
