Hi Guys im trying to get the numb shoulder gone. Not tomention the failed frominotomy I had 4 months ago. This time I ill be recieving the prestige artificial disc at C34. I will have done facet decompression at C6 and C7 from the back.
DO you think sleeping on my back wil be hard. I will be hospitalized 2 days. Im comfortable with my surgeon but being 53 with DDD I really don't know what to expect.
Also has anyone had pectoral muscle atrophy from C7 bulging disc?
Any hints to what to expect and provide for myself the first few weeks of recovery. Sleeping on the incision seems like it might not work. I hope I do not have any swallowing problems.
Wish me health! And back at all of you.
