Wow I can't believe thursday is 4 weeks post surgery. Had 3 level ACDF on March 12. First week was horrible but things have gotten progressively better since then. My biggest problem right now is I still feel like I have a lump in my throat. It doesn't hurt so much as annoy me and I feel like there's something in there clogging my throat.
Got my bone stimulator the other day, can't feel a thing. Just having problems keeping the electrodes on my neck. They gave me bandaid type things to put over them but the adhesive on them started eating my skin. Now I'm trying to find a tape that won't eat my skin and still keep the stupid electrodes on.
My NS doesn't believe in using collars so surprisingly I have pretty good ROM. I can look side to side and up without much pain. Looking down hurts some but over all the pain is down. I even went out yesterday and drove without too much problems.
I'm happy to report my headaches are almost gone. One of my major problems before surgery was daily headaches now it's down to maybe one every couple days. I'm very happy about that.
Sorry I havn't been on much this last month or so my biggest issue since surgery has been looking down at my laptop so I havn't been online much.
Hope everyone is doing well and I'll try to catch up on the posts today.
Take care and thanks for being there.
