Hi Shayna!

You're in my thoughts and prayers.  With fibro, it's gonna be worse but then you

already know that.  I've been avoiding both lumbar and cervical surgery since I

have severe fibro but I don't know how much longer I can deal with the pain. 

Hang in there, remember we fibromyalgics are a tough breed!  ;-)  I'm gonna

continue to wait - for what I don't know - and in the meantime will be

interested to hear how you progress.

I had the cervical surgery and let me just

say " OUCH "

Okay, so none of you told me how freaking much this was going to hurt.

This is nothing like the lumbar surgery.

I woke up crying. Really hoping this was worth it. Anyone care to chime

in and let me know if this has been successful for them?

I am still not even sure what all he did. I think once he got in there,

he decided to work on more than just the c-4,5.

My neck hurts from the base of my skull down into my shoulders.

I will try to post again, but good God...I was not ready for this.

Wish me luck. Talk to you all soon.

Shayna

I am so sorry you are having trouble with the surgery. I had it done on

May 8 and was fantastic for 10 whole days. After that, it started to

hurt. It hurts right in the back of my neck but he went in through the

front. I am so afraid that something is wrong. Why would it first start

to hurt after 10 days. I am 3 weeks out now and it still hurts.

I hope you feel better soon.

,

Well, I called the docs office and they agreed to up my pain meds.

Was taking Lortab 7.5's she said I could double up on those and has

also given me Soma instead of flexeril.

I actually slept last night. I can't remember how long it has been.

I still woke up a few times and had to take another dose of medicine,

but all in all it was better.

It was hilarious to me. The nurse spoke to me the first time when I

called and had this tone like I was a drug seeker. Then she spoke

with my surgeon and found out that is not the case. Her attitude

changed completely. Was much nicer and almost apologetic.

I know some people are just drug seeking, but it annoys me when it is

one of us trying to get genuine help with a real situation and they

give you attitude. ya know?

Anyway, Point being, I am all doped up now, but feeling much better.

Still sore,stiff and swollen. But, not in anywhere near the pain I

was in yesterday.
