Just wanted to take a few to let you guys know how my surgery went.
I was at the hospital 2/19/08 at about 445am...checked in with registration....and by 530 I was getting prepped.
Surgery started at 706am and ended at 902am. By 1030 am I was awake....very groggy....but awake and got up and went to bathroom with the help of the nurse.
By that afternoon I knew the surgery had worked....all my arm pain, burning, numbness were gone...doctor came in to see me and I gave him a nice strong hand shake. Told me that the level they fixed was about to colapse.
Anyway, spent the night at the hospital....ended up coming home yesterday. I am walking around and feeling pretty good.
Feel like I have a lump in my throat...swallowing issues....but they are geting better.
Surgery was done at EDITED. Would recc. this to anyone needing care in ohio
Dr. EDITED The ortho and the neuro docs were great....really take their time and care.
I am up on the computer and doing good so far....if anyone has an questions or are nervous about this surgery let me know.
This was my first surgery and I am 26 yrs old
