I hope everyone is well!
I had surgery to replace my C 4/5 three weeks ago. I'm doing ok with meds..heat..ice...etc...basically all the same stuff I did before the surgery. I'm moving around better...but often make myself stop because I'm scared to death I'm going to mess something up!..Lol!
My husband is literally driving me crazy with all of his "What's your pain level?" questions...He's getting nervous that the surgery didn't work...But, Seriously...How would I know this early if it worked or not?!
So I need some advice from all of you who have had surgery...
How much do you walk (for exercise) each day?
Did you do any stretching before your post op visit?
Did your pain completely go away or just become tolerable?
My chiropractor who also did a lot of PT with me wants to handle my recovery. Any opinions??
Thanks everyone! (and sorry for the bad spelling
