Thank you all for your kind words.
I had my acdf on friday 08/08/08. All went well. I had to stay in the hospital for 3 nights. Was in much much pain & couldn't eat.
I am wearing my soft bling collar. I do not like it but...
I think I am feeling well & try to do something like get a glass of water. That is too much right now. I get up & walk to the bathroom or aound the house as much as I can before i get too weak & dizzy.
I am on percs. 2 every 4 hours. I find that they do help but deffinatly look forward to the next pill. I have to say that I thought I would feel better. I still have a lot of pain in my neck & new left sided neck & upper back & arm pain. I see the surgeon on friday. I'm sure it's just the whole healing process.
I am so glad to be home. My 2 boys & husband have been wonderful.
