ACDF C5 and C6 Surgery

I am a healthy 44 year old and sustained injury to my C5 C6 with treatment over the last year ranging from oral steroids to physical therapy. The pain, numbness, tingling, headaches, and loss of range of motion led me to specialist in my Pittsburgh area who has performed many of these for athletes. I am a little nervous about the procedure but know I need to try something to get my quality of life back. I am having the surgery Monday Morning April 9th and will keep posting to let you know how the rehab and and surgery goes. If anyone has any things they can offer to make this easier or things you learned the hard way post opt, please share.

Sully

Re: ACDF C5 and C6 Surgery
