New here. Just found this forum. It has been very helpful so far but still have a few questions.
A little history on myself. I had preexsisting cervical and lumbar spine problem. Not bad, just some early degenerative chances and then was involved in an auto accident. Rear ended and caused injury to cervical spinal cord from the disk protrusions, torn rotator cuffs in both shoulders and ulnar nerve entrapment in left elbow.
I will be having a three level ACDF decompression and fusion at C4-5, C5-7 and C6-7 on Monday (May 11, 2009). My drive home is a little over a hundred miles after surgery. My husband is a little nervous about driving me that far. Is there anything to help make drive easier? Also get extreme nausea after surgeries and major headaches from anesthesia that last about 3 days. Any home remedies?
A little nervous... Really don't want to throw up after having neck surgery
Thanks for any info. given.
