Cervical Nerve Ablation

I had cervical nerve ablation done 4 weeks ago.  C4-5-6.  The pain has gone from bad to off the charts.  Instead of one side hurting both sides hurt.  Not only both sides, but the base of my neck is an area about 2" in diameter that is on fire 24/7.   My ears are ringing, I am nauseated and am having wicked spasms.  How long until it helps?  Is this normal?  I am living on ice packs.  It seems it is the only thing that helps.

  Hi...I am so sorry u r feeling so poorly post op....but nething to do with the nerves u can have pain as u r healing....and I was told it can take up to 2 yrs for nerves to heal completely that is not to say that is how long u will feel this pain...but is the reality of nerves.

Were u given ne exercises to do to keep ur neck muscles from getting tight? My surgery was for something different, but it involved the cervical spine and nerves, so I know how important it is to move to avoid scar tissue and the muscles from tightening...could be y u have the spasms???

I used heat b4 I did my exercises as heat allows the muscles to relax, ice tightens...so although it may feel good it may not be the best thing...

When using heat or ice no more the15 mins at a time....use the heating pad , do ur neck exercises and then 15 more mins of heat....

  Have u talked to ur Dr?

What pain meds r u on...many NSAIDS  and other pain will cause ringing in the ears....
