I quit my muscle relaxers 6 weeks post op thinking they were not helping. Friday my dr told me to start taking them again and I see an improvement already. I didn't know the constant pain was a muscle spasm, but guess it was.
Ice packs are what gave me lots of relief-leaning back in my recliner on an ice pack felt good when I had over done it.
A liquid meal that you can suck thru a bendable straw may still be the easiest for you. I know you are sick of that but it might be better than straining yourself. I found there is just something very difficult about
how our necks need to move to get a bite to the mouth and in the brace is even harder. Hoping for a better day for you and a week too!
