I realize everyone has a different time frame in healing. But, I am curious what folks are experiencing that are a couple months ahead of me. I was 4 months post op on March 3rd. I'd love to hear feedback on the following:
Do you still have pain? If so, please describe what you feel.
Do the aches/pain move around your neck area?
Awareness? Are there moments, days or hours where you realize that your not reminded that you had surgery or neck issues?
Non fusion/Partial? Would you describe what your neck feels like being partially fused, or non fused at 6-12 months. How did you know that something wasnt quite right?
How many follow up appts did you have before being released from NS/OS care?
How many Xrays did your NS/OS take to make sure that you are on track and show positive signs of fusion?
Sleeping issues? Can you find your happy place and in what position do you find the most comfortable?
Level of normal activities: To what extent are you back to normal activities? Golf, Tennis, jogging, gardening? etc.
Do you still pay for increased activity with some pain the following day?
Lots of question huh...but I think each of your experiences will help me in my journey. Thanks in advance to all of you who chime in!
