I've heard folks say that their surgery failed or didn't take. Does that mean that no fusion occurred?
What happens when no fusion occurs? I sure hope my ACDF is successful. I'd hate to do this again. I'm 10 weeks out and go back Nov 30 to see how I'm doing.
I had no fusion at 5 weeks but have been faithful with my bone stimulator and walking.
I still feel raw inside. If I get bumped or step hard I get sharp pain like it's not all good in my neck yet. I get pain when I walk too but I think it's just my weak neck muscles trying to do their job. When I slow down it gets better. I can't do my normal pace yet.
I hear some folks talking about go out and riding their bikes and such at 12 weeks but most of those seem to have just one level done. I had 3 does that make healing slower?
