Well it's been 18 days since I had surgery and I've seen my doctor for the 2 week check. He said everything looks great. I had C6-7 Anterior Cervical Diskectomy and fusion. My surgery was done as an outpatient I went in at 6 that morning and went home by 1 in the afternoon. My doctor didn't have me wear a collar which I'm so glad I didn't have to. I'm really feeling great sometimes I even forget I've had surgery and that concerns me. I do get a little tried. I fear I will do to much and hurt myself. My doctor has me off from work for 6 weeks, which is not a problem I have plenty of sick leave days. I'll be bored out of my mind by the time 6 weeks are up. But I don't want to go back to soon. Any suggestions to help with boredom? I did forget to ask my doctor what restrictions I have at this point. I plan on calling him tomorrow but wanted to hear from you guys on the restrictons you had at this point. I will be going back to the doctor in 2 months along with an x-ray I will need to get a couple days before the appointment.
