C4,5 and 6 surgery

Started by sumi on 02/06/2011 1:57am

I had a fusion of C3 and 4, and a prosthesis between c4 and 5, and another prosthesis between c5 and 6 done a week ago. The op went off well, and I was discharged on day 4 after the op - still had a neck drain, and went back the next day to have that removed. I still have to be careful when I swallow - as some things, especially capsules, get stuck. My big problem is that I can't get comfortbale to sleep - i have the most awful shoulder spasms and it doesn't matter whether I sit and sleep or lie down - I survive on about 3 hours sleepn a night - any suggestions?
