I am 5 weeks post NF op.   For the last 3 nights, I have started hurting pretty badily around the wrap site & the pain is through my back & chest. I am trying not to take the narcotic pain killer that the surgeon gave me. Tylenol does nothing for the pain.  I have had to drink a 1/2 cup of very warm water & then the pain starts to subside.  Anyone else experience anything like this?

Hi Josie,
That sounds like esophageal spasms.  I didn't have them, but some people do.   I suggest you call your surgeon and report them.  He/she may have something to suggest that can help.  Let me know what you find out and how it all turns out.
Good luck!
