Re: Post C4-6 ACDF week 7

Week 7
I went back to work 2 1/2 days in the office, and the other days from home. All together almost 35 hours of work for the week. I felt really good at he beginning of the week, but by end of week I was exhausted and hurting. I took a down day Friday and am better by Sunday.

I needed to push myself over the hump because I felt I was stuck for the past two weeks, so I stepped up my walking and really started making myself not wear the miami j. Today was first day I kept it off most of day. I have some discomfort in my arm, some in my neck in the bone, I am sure it is healing though because I can lay in positions I couldn't before. No pain meds still, just tylenol. I even slept on my side. Trying to get used to the idea that it may take a while to feel really great. I rode in the car without the collar, and today I drove to the grocery store, first time driving all by myself since surgery. I am stil happy every day that I did the surgery.
