4 months post cervical spine posterior fusion
An_252170 posted:
Seems I was doing fine until 6 weeks ago when all of the pain numbness and "falling asleep" sensation returned. I had to be hospitalized to manage the pain with IV Steroids and Dilaudid.

I am fused from C3-T1. Right hand is numb again. Pain is awful that Oxy 10mg 3 times a day won't address.

Why would I get better and then start to fall backwarks pain-wise

I've been around pain for a long time and I think maybe the dose is not strong enough or has changed and you need to tell your Dr. this and ask fir helP!!!
