Nurianna Posted August 31, 2008 Share Posted August 31, 2008 One of my main problems is my neck. My surgery was occipital/cerebelum area. Apart from the feeling that my head weighs a ton at times, it hurts to turn round quickly and other times there´s a feeling of pressure and pain if I start doing physical jobs around the house and have to bend down. I´m waiting for an appointment with a physiotherapist any day and in the meantime, I´ve been advised by a neurosurgeon to swim and my GP has given me a stiffneck collar to wear a couple of hours a day. I have to admit that it does provide a feeling of relief as is takes off the pressure of the weight from my muscles. Has anyone had a similar experience with a stiffneck collar? Should I try to make do without it? My GP is not a neurologist. Is there any counterindication in using this device? Sorry if I sound paranoid, but my SAH is recent and everything seems suspicious and dangerous..... Any tipis will be very welcome, Love, Nurianna Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
