Thursday will be 3 wks since operation symptoms havnt really gone or is this usual?
Hi I had c45c56 disc replacement and fusion using my stem cells from my bone marrow on 9/21/15. Today, is the start of 7 weeks for me and I'm still in pain. I am stiff and have constant pain in my shoulder blades and when I turn my neck. I also still have same exact pain on right side of my neck that I had for 8 months straight before my surgery. I'm so confused. I've been walking and doing neck exercises and going to acupuncture., using heat and ice....I put a call in to my doc...hoping he can provide me w some real answers....I spoke to another person on here and they said it takes awhile to heal from this type of surgery....3-6 months....frustrating....praying we both get relief soon.
