Post surgery issues

Started by Jgconfusion 1 week 9 hours ago

I had emergency spinal fusion surgery on March 27th 2019. Fusion of c-3 to c-8 and 2 vertebrae removed due to infection in the bone in addition to an abscess with cord compression in c-5. Sensations, skin pain and numbness were excruciating first 3 months but slow improvement since. I have hardware now. 2 long rods and 8 screws, have to take doxycycline the rest of my life because of the infection but my main question is.... do any of you have a burning sensation where the rods are? Pain creams relieve pain and stiffness but not the burning. Is this normal? Please help.
