Haven't been on much lately, but just wanted to let everyone know that it has almost been 4 months since my c6-c7 ACDF on June 9th, and I've been back to work now for almost a month.
I'm feeling really great, even lifting some things, and no issues. Oh course once in a while, I do notice I get a little "feeling" in my throat, but nothing much, maybe just a reminder to take it easy I guess.
First week back was tough getting back into groove, and of course my neck was somewhat tight. But now I am turning my neck more and more, and looking almost like a normal person again.
For those of you that just had, or are about to have surgery... Good luck!
Looks like everything was successful for me.
