Hi all,
I have cruised this site as well as many others prior to my surgeries this year. I had postponed my 2 surgeries for several years not wanting to take so much time out of life until it could no longer be postponed. I had my first cervical fusion about 17 years ago after a car wreck.
Recovery is going slow and I am trying to keep my thoughts positive. Both surgeries had complications so the body has a lot to come back from.
I am still using a walker and having PT at home.
I will be looking thru the threads to see if there is anyone with similar circumstances and gather all the info I can.
I welcome anyone who wants to reach out with their thoughts and feedback.
