If you say, “My back or neck pain has not resolved after surgery”; then, in fact, you should ask yourself the following question: “What percent of my pre-surgery pain is left over?” If this number is 40 and less, than it was a successful operation. I’m sure your surgeon has already told you that you should not expect a miracle.
If this number is over 40, then you should ask the following question: “Did I follow my surgeon’s recommendations?” If you had been offered a diet but have not done anything yet, or have stopped doing the exercises recommended to you; start again right away. But if the answer to this question is “Yes, I have”, then consult a physiotherapist immediately and undergo the treatment that he recommends. If you are still unhappy with your condition a month after this treatment is over, then it is time to find an experienced surgeon.
