Well it is 3 days before I have the Anterior Cervical Corpectomy with Fusion and the Posterior Laminectomy with Instrumentation, and I am getting very nervous and anxious. I asked my NS for something to calm my nerves, but he doesn't prescribe for that and suggested I call my PCP or shrink. I may have to do that.
I am going to be in a hard collar for 4 weeks, and even though I have read many posts about how people have recovered, I am still scared to death! I have purchased a lot of the items on the post-op list, and have just about everything I want to take to the hospital, many that were on the list too.
I am not sure if I will be posting after today, so if not, I will try to post an update next week. I am expected to be in the hospital from Wednesday until Saturday at least.
Thanks for all of the info over the past few weeks, and supporting comments. I know I will be seeking additional support in the future.
