I have to agree with Selma because I did go to a massage after surgery. Can't remember how long after, but made sure she didn't get near the neck area, but afterward I felt worse so I didn't think it was worth it. Everyone is different though. Just be careful if you decide to go and please don't let them get near the neck and shoulder area. The Dr. moved a lot of muscle's back there in surgery and if you are just post op it will just confuss your nerves more and might cause more pain. Maybe ask your NS before going.
If yu do please tell them what is going on in the neck and I would have them avoid that area. Some massage therapist just as dr's. don't know what chairi is and you don't want them to irriate anything.
