Spinal Cord Disorders Message Board

Spinal Cord Disorders Board Index

Just got to thinking about my appt. with my NS last week. It was my first appt. since surgery, which was 9 weeks earlier. I explained that nothing had improved and that now I was having terrible pain at the base of my head which traveled up the back and all the way around to forehead. He explained that muscles, ligaments and nerves (including the occipital nerve) were displaced during surgery and that it could take a long time for all to heal. I asked him about PT, but he said that PT would be a ways down the road. He gave me a booklet with neck stretches I could try.

From reading all other posts, it seems that everyone is getting PT by this time. Why not me? Do you think that he may suspect something and is not saying so? My worst fear is that I may fall into the category of the 10% or so, that the surgery does not help!
