Wondering if anyone else has experienced neck and shoulder pain several months after surgery. I had esophageal surgery this past July with 2 good CT scans since. The last one was done in early February. Lately, however I am experiencing back shoulder and neck pain, the pain even shoots down my arm (from time to time). I am on 50 mg of Demerol every 4 hrs, I also take an Advil, helps a little but I am in constant pain most of the time. It seems to have started almost 3 weeks ago and I linked it to the way I had slept one night. I woke up in a very awkward position and have been experiencing severe pain (started in my neck)ever since. I was hoping that by now if it were just a regular pulled muscle I would see some improvement by now. I have had an x-ray last Tuesday, but I will not get any results until next week. My next CT scan is in 2 weeks.
