#:S I've been sitting at home taking it easy since the surgery on 10-16-09, and I'm ready to get this healing process on the way. I haven't got to meet with my neurosurgeon since so I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to speed this healing process up. Any movements, stretching, things like that?
The surgery was a normal acdf c-5/c-6. I was told the disc was huge and the doctor was suprised I was still walking. Surgery was pretty good. Necks obliviously sore when swollening, and little raspy but thats normal. I'm in a soft collar and it's itching like crazy, but I'm a strong person and I can work through it.
The reason I want to get back to normal as soon as possible is because I am a mother of a 6 year old and a 3 month old, and they both depend on me. Espically my 3 month old daughter. I need to get better for them and for myself to be all I can be for them. I was hoping to still be able to take my son trick-n-treating, but I'm not sure if I'll be that good by Oct. 31st.
