3rd Neck Surgery

I am a little behind. On January 9th I did have my 3rd surgery. The Dr. removed some hardware and cut down the 7th vertebrae. I was sent home the next day on pain meds.

Went back 2 weeks later to have 30 staples removed. I sent back to physical therapy were they do deep muscle massage.

Not much has changed on my neck - I still get pain by the end of the day so I need to put on my brace to take the pressure off of the muscles. I will be getting a home traction device to try to straighten up my neck it is protruding too far forward which is causing my pain. Sorry it has taken me so long to post I have been coming and going to other Drs it has been a whirl wind around here.
