This is actually ALMOST funny. I had my surgery (C5-6) on March 24th. Very successful and I was healing great. By May 6th my doctor let me go back to work and decided I didn't need physical therapy. I was feeling great.
One week later, I caught bronchitis from my boyfriend. One week into that I came out with a BIG case of shingles (adult chicken pox). A week after that, I got pink-eye.
I'm fine now, but it took forever to get over everything. (about a month) It's amazing how our bodies slump when our immune systems are low... but still have the capability to come right back up!
