As some of you know I will be having surgery on September the 3rd. Two level ACDF C 4-6.
I have read many posts where people have discussed using a wedge pillow after surgery.
At this point I am thinking it might noght come in time for my arival home from surgery but you never know.
I was wondering a few things about the type, brand and size of the wedge pillow that you may have purchased.
At this time I am thinking of purchasing two wedge pillows both at the 7 inch heigth because I really would like the height to be good for a 1/2 sitting and 1/2 reclined position.
The reason I was considering two wedges was to stack them on top of eachother and also that would give me the option of having it at two different heigths. I personally think I will like the taller wedge but having two in the 7 inch heigth may be a better route to go and be good for more uses.
My Surgery date is Spet. 3rd and at this time I am not sure I can get one to arive in time for when I get home from the hospital.
So I was thinking if Bed Bath and beyond had them in stocl I could just get two at the 7 inch heigth.
Has anyone used the ones from Bed Bath and Beyond?? Did you like them?
If your pillow came from some other place could you tell me the name of the place of purchase? ALso what size wedge did you purchase and did you like the size you picked?
Please any information on the wedges would be greatly appreciated. I have done some internet research for them and i have found some I liked but that was when I got to thinking if I just purchased it at Bed Bath and Beyond I would then get two pillows and have the option of using it at two differnt heigths.
I am feeling very harried about all the small little things I need to get done before surgery. Also feeling nervous. My Mom will be here for the surgey and to take car of me afterward so that is all in order, but making sure all this little stuff is in check is becoming a bit overwhelming. I am probably making it that way because I am nervous and anxious...I can admitt that, but I just do not want to forget anything ya know.
Also any suggestions of any other things I may need to know before the ACDF please feel free to pass them along
