Hi everyone -
I am scheduled for the 29th, which is 2 weeks away (my nerves are starting to act up) needless to say I have 4 children all of whom will be at their championship swim meet while I am having surgery.
I am scheduled for 7am, thank goodness, but I have searched and searched and i can not find the actual time it takes to do the surgery. As of right now, I am just ACDF on C4/C5 with cadaver bone. However, it is possible my dr may have to do a two level fusion.
Time really does not matter to me, but I am just looking for some sort of guideline that I can tell my family. I will be driving myself to the hosp, my preferance really my children need to have their daddy home to calm them too.
my precert is next week, and i will be measured at that time too for both braces, just in case my surgery becomes more involved than just single ACDF.
thank you !
