I had a 3 level cervical fusion 9 days ago. I have been in intense pain ever since. Is this part of the healing procedure? My appointment is on 6 days. Sleeping is the worst part. Have to sleep propped up in a reclining position. I am scared I made a colossal mistake. The pain I suffered from before the surgery was way more tolerable than this! If I know this will pass I can handle it better. Thank you
