When I wake up in the morning I am in an extreme amount of pain in my neck, I can't even get out of bed, I have to have pain pills and water next to bed to take and wait to be able to rise. The pain is so bad that 10 is not even on the chart of pain..i.e..1-10 pain chart. I have not called the surgeon as it has just been 2 weeks today. I also feel like my throat is not all the way open, very scary...Maybe 2 weeks is still too soon, but the pain is off the charts. I keep wondering if I mada a mistake having the surgery. But maybe I didn't have any choice?, my spinal cord was compressed....c5-c6.
