well its been 3 months since my 2 level acdf surgery c4-c6.prior to surgery i had achy legs,loss of sensitivity in hands and feet,i would stagger,arms hurt from shoulder to elbow. by the end of the day after walking 10 miles as a mailman i could barely move due to body hurting and swelling.
no sleep due to pains.was taking diff meds to help ease pain.
since my surgery my sensitivity has come back,legs dont hurt,arms dont hurt(shoulders still a little stiff)dont stagger anymore.i was able to walk right away and havent stopped since. no more sleepless nights. i have been getting 7-8 hrs of restless sleep!! and to be able to have a smile on my face all day instead of the painful face ive been carrying is the best!!! people have seen a difference in my attitude. the only meds i take now is tylenol and thats only once or twice a week. so my decision for this surgery was the right one. to get rid of 90% of my symptoms is a good thing. i can deal with the other 10% since it isnt everyday. so good luck to all who have or had this surgery!!
