I had pain at the base of my skull too. Man does that hurt!! How long did you wear a neck brace? After my first surgery I had extreme headaches and pain at the base of my skull for quite some time. I returned to very physical job also. I ran a fork lift and did alot of heavy lifting. The rehad doctors told me that mmy spine was slightly longer with the fusion and recommended therapy to help stretch my muscles. You have to wait til you are completely fused though. It worked like a charm!!
PS I am a smoker too. I am trying to cut back but it is hard. That's about the only thing I can do right now. I know I shouldn't cause it can effect fusion rates.
