I had my first checkup with my surgeon yesterday. He did take 2 xrays of my neck, and says I look great. That is always good news after we have went though so much, as you all know. He wants to co another xray when i am 3 months out.
He thought I was doing so well, (even though I have sore stiff muscles) he said he didn't think I needed to go to to Physical therapy. I am wanting to go to the Y, and do the deep water exercises, and he said that would help alot with the muscle sorness, just not to over do, which I won't.
I had C6/7 fusion with hardware, and a soft collar to wear, but he said I didn't have to wear it all the time. I do wear it to sleep, and when I drive.
I guess we are all coming along slow but sure. I am not sorry I had this surgery, it has helped me allready, and I am sure as times goes by I will get better and better. Maybe I can have a life again.
I wish you all the best.
