I had an Anterior cervical discectomy with fusion surgery on Sept, !!, 2012. I was told after surgery that I was in so much pain before the surgery I was given a double dose of the anesthetic that is normally given to surgery patients. I had a disc removed and a bone graft placed between C5 and C6, with a titanium plate screwed in.
The surgeon was great and I'm 12 days post surgery and my knock feels great and my pain I was having the surgery to get rid of is gone. However I have been having headaches almost everyday. I was wondering if the surgery itself or the anesthetic I was administered would be causing the headaches. I'm not sure what was causing them. Does anyone have any answers? Thank you.
