Hey fro, I'm sorry you're still dealing with post op issues too. Have you been back to see him since surgery? It sounds to me like a phone call is needed. Maybe you can make an appt to get checked out.
I know it takes a long time to heal from this surgery and patience runs thin when you feel so bad. Speaking from experience there too....
I'm also 17 months post op and recently been diagnosed with intracranial hypertension and it's just been worrisome and trying.
i hope you can get some answers. Good luck
Hi , I agree a call to the Dr is advisable......but am curious as to what you do at work? What your daily routine is.....sometimes what we do post op can affect recovery and possible cause set backs.
It can take a long time to heal and that depends on you and how you typically heal and your activity levels.....plus what other possible related and non related conditions you might have.
You may continue to see benefits for years after this surgery....it is not as quick to see or notice as some of us would like.....
I continue to have periods where I do not like to lay on my incision....so you are still too early in recovery to think that is an issue....but the whole neck and head going numb and the nausea and dizziness are a different story....you could have an impinged nerve or a CSF leak....no way to know...when was your last MRI?
Have you tried a cervical brace? It may help hold your head in the correct position and help with the pain...just a thought.
