I posted in here over a year ago about being on a wait list for surgery on my neck. The plan is to fuse my c5 and c6 vert together. I have a deformed vertebra and it causes daily pain.
While waiting for my admission date I fell pregnant and had twins! They will be just over 6 months when I am set to have the surgery. I have been told I will not be able to lift my children for at least 6 weeks. I will not be able to pick them up on Christmas day.
Also there is a 60% chance the op will do anything for the pain. It may even make it worse! They neurosurgeon says that he has NEVER seen the deformities I have and his colleagues said the same.
Obviously I am having second thoughts. I was ok about it until I got my letter today. It seems so final. I am scared and worried and I just wanted to hear from people that have been through it!
Also, what was recovery from something, like this like?
