Spinal collar comfort tips please
My husband had decompression and fusion on 3 cervical vertebrae just over two weeks ago. He’s finding the hard spinal collar quite uncomfortable where it rests on his shoulders, and also is experiencing pain running from neck down to far end of shoulder beyond where collar is, maybe just nerves playing up while healing?? Can anyone give any tips for making the hard collar more comfortable, or can share what it was like for them at this stage of recovering from this surgery?
