Re: List of items to have at home after ACDF

OMG... are you serious?? I have almost gotten my mind around this surgery and after reading what you need after the surgery from the list sticked at the top of the page has just scared me to death. I need to have two levels done and not because im in pain, well, a little arm pain here and there but pain I can live with. .. however theres the minor detail that its pushing against my spinal cord so they are very insistent that I have this surgery. PLEASE please tell me recovery isnt this bad?
Im supposed to having this surgery in illinois and then a week later fly to california to recover.... with all that can I possibly do that?? will I even be up and out of bed walking around? Your mentioning bed pans and all kinds of things I didnt think I would need... Please tell me its not this bad?

Re: List of items to have at home after ACDF

Your thread was moved from the sticked thread entitled, List of items to have at home after ACDF located at the top of the page. The instructions of the thread, instructed you to not post questions in thread but to start a new thread instead. I have moved your post into this new thread. In order to start a new thread, there is a blue button in the left hand corner of the page part way down, that you simply need to depress to start a new thread. Then type your message and depress the submit reply button.

Thank you

A lot of the stuff posted on that list is for back surgery...I didn't need anything special really...I do wish I would have gotten the wedge pillow might have made sleeping the first couple of nights a little bit easier...
