Constant pain makes it difficult to do anything including the simple tasks of person care( shower, etc)have had 3 surgeries to neck & 1 fusion to lower back. Pain was completely gone after third surgery to neck but then my l5-s1 disc ruptured 3 months later & had a fusion surgery performed. In the first month of recovering from low back surgery, my neck started experiencing sharp pain. Have had multiple steroid injections, 2 ablasions. Physicals therapy aggravated symptoms tremendously during the massage potion of the therapy.
