Hey Everyone. I wish I would have found this about 2 months ago. I am 25 and am having a acdf surgery tomorrow. I guess my only worry is how am I going to be able to take care of my beautiful 3 month old daughter since I have no family or friends in the area, and none to come help. I'm sure this will be fun. Everyone keeps on asking me if I am nervous, and oblivously I am. I can't feel most of my right hand, and the left is numb. I can't walk normal because of the numbness in my right leg, and the weakness is a wonderful feeling. I know I might never 100% recover from this, but who knows. I've noticed recently that I keep on having these waves of pain move through my neck into my head, and I've stopped looking down to avoid the pain.
I was told that part of the back labor I had made a small problem into a big one, since I had no noticed problems before my daughter was born. I guess I shouldn't have been shopping on black friday last year, since that's when I got in a car accident. I knew it was to good to be true, when I didn't have any damage(she hit me in the bumper at a shopping mall). I guess I should say thankyou to everyone on here, because I feel no alone. You've given me hope that maybe, just maybe I can get back to normal soon.
