C4 - c5 post op help!

Started by Jsfl on 11/18/2018 7:15am

Hi all
Surgery went well, 1 night in the hospital. I am at day 5 post op. I was sent home with what feels like very little instructions and a post op appointment in 6 weeks. I have the soft collar and was told to wear it at night for the first couple of weeks. It's horrible and seems to make my neck muscle pain from the surgery worse. I am sleeping on a recliner like chair (only the back goes back by pushing it) . My throat is better but not eating much, I have been able to walk around quite a bit. I stopped taking the oxy yesterday, I hate the side effects, but I'm not sleeping at all. Can anyone give advice on what they did to sleep, chair, bed, types of pillows, etc
