Fell after Laminectomy and Discectomy

Started by Gretchenrk on 02/11/2019 9:45pm

I had a laminectomy and discectomy on c7/t1 on the right side on 1/22/19. I had a pinched nerve affecting my right hand and arm. I had been making some progress and was feeling a bit better. I fell on the ice yesterday and caught myself with my right arm (of course!) Been having major neck and shoulder pain all day, as bad as it was after surgery. I'm taking flexeril and percocet for pain management but am not getting relief from this new pain. I'm really worried I screwed something up. The surgeons nurse said to take a couple days rest and see if I feel better. Wondering if anyone else has done something as unfortunate as falling post surgery. Any advice?
