Hi All - had my 1 month follow up today and all went well! They said the Xray looked good - screws and plates all in place and can see some bone growth - no confirmation on fusion too early - but bone growth is good! Got the OK to start Physical Therapy and was advised that I may need my pain meds again once I start PT as pain will increase before it gets better. Absolutely hate pain meds so will just have to bear it on tylenol! No release to work they said at least for 4 - 8 more weeks - does that sound right - my next follow up appt is March 10th and NS said she will not release me until then or maybe sooner depending on how PT goes ... how long has everyone been out of work with ACDF 2 level surgery??
Glad to finally be able to get out and do more ..
Just need my ecigs to arrive and I will be good to go!
