Hello to all. Many of us are returning to work after surgery. You may have had cervical (ACDF) or lumber fusion. We are wondering what helped you make it through the day, how you coped at work, how you managed your pain. Any and all personal stories are welcome.
I had ACDF on 12/9/2010.
I bring my soft collar to work with me. When my head seems too heavy for my neck or my neck is very sore, I put the collar on for a while. I also take some time and put my head back and clothes my eyes for a while. I also have difficulty working on the computer for any length of time. I know proper posture is of the utmost importance. It is hard to remember not to slouch.
Hope to hear other suggestions that can help us all.
