5 days post ACDF c5-c6
It's been at least five days from my last post, and a lot has happened. So Monday July 1 my neurosurgeons office called asking me to have my surgery on the 3rd instead of the 12th. The nurse said the doc was really worried and he normally isn't ever like that. So I took it as I better get it done. In July 3 I showed up at the hospital at 4:45 am ready to get this party started.
I woke up from surgery with little to no pain. The first few days were rough. I couldn't swallow anything with out pain. I couldn't eat that much of anything even the soft foods I tried.
By July 4th I was released to go home. The hardest thing to do is not moving my neck. I have started having spasms I'm guessing from tensing up my muscles. It's so weird while relaxing I get cabin fever. Then after being up for a minute or two I am ready for a nap. Well I'm off to take a nap. I hope this finds you pain free, happy healing.
