Thank you Susie. I am hoping it is just swelling and such, but it's so gross
I have my next appointment on Monday and will ask there. I do assume that I will be able to stop wearing the brace after that appointment and start physical therapy. My doctor was having me wear it for 6 weeks. I can take it off if I am just sitting at home or in the shower, but otherwise I have to wear it. Getting on the backside of 5 weeks now and I am definitely ready to stop wearing this thing.
I do have soreness and spasms on the back of my neck and down my shoulders, so hopefully this will get better as I heal and the hump will go away.
