I am just wondering what my first post op visit to the surgeons office will be like??
Will they take an x-ray?? I want to see what my neck looks like now..
Will they take my collar off and orve my head because that is somewhat scary to think about?? eek!!
Will they take off the bandage strips on my incision???
I also would like to see what the incision looks like. With all the other surgeries I have had I was able to start to rub the incision and start to smooth out the scar so I am anxious to start that as soon as he will allow me to do so. I have had real good results with minimizing sugical scars by doing some massage to the surgical cut.
Anyway just want to know what to expect. Oh also what will they be looking for on the x-ray if they do take one? Can fusion of the bone start that quickly? What is the
"text-book" time frame for fusion to begin??
