I just had my 2 month post op from my 3 level ACDF. It went great! Best news - NO MORE COLLAR! Not even a soft one. <:P
My NS said I could start physical therapy and use my PT that discovered my myelopathy. Again - YEAH!
I still have back spasms, dysphagia, and voice issues - all of which he brought up first and said he wasn't surprised with the level of difficulty of my surgery. I brought my list and just checked things off as he talked.
He said they will all get better in time.
He gave me a another script for SOMA and asked if I wanted more Vicodin, which I declined. He said to not hesitate to call in a refill.
I'm excited but nervous about carrying my own weight without support for the first time in 2 months!
