I am now 2 weeks away from surgery and starting to get a little anxious. With Christmas over it's time to get ready for the surgery.
I have read the lists of what to get and it is overwhelming. My doctor keeps saying that I should be back to work in 2-3 weeks. That makes me think this will be an easy recovery compared to what alot of you are going through.
As I look at the list I am trying to pick out just the things I think I will need. Does anyone have experience with this type of surgery in this area? He says he will just remove the piece of disc that is pressing out and that since it is t1/t2 I won't need a fusion or anything else. Might need to cut some vertebra to get to the disc. Sounds pretty simple - yeah right!!
Any suggestions would be appreciated!!
