Hello everyone, my name is Laura and I'm 48 years old and went through neck surgery. I'm 2 months out and at first everything was going well 100% no pain, but I did have a bad infection due to latex tape which the doctors knew I was allergic to. The swelling is gone, now I feel very week and when I turn my head to the left I want to pass out, I called my surgeon and he seen me but told me he doesn't want to see me anymore. I have a knot on my neck that wasn't there before, and my family doctor believes that the rest of the stitch didn't dissolve completely. My neck gets itchy at times and I have yellowish puss coming from the incision, which the surgeon claims is normal. My surgeon now wants me to see a neurologist for my symptoms.
Is this all in my head, or can a neurologist help me, or is this a surgeon miss up? I don't know what to do,
I'm afraid if I go to sleep, because now when I do sleep I have a very hard time waking up….its like I'm in a coma I can hear people tell me to get up but I can't move or speck, I literally have to force myself to move or have my family to pull me into a sitting position.
