I am six and a half months post op posterior fusion, c456. I still do not have full control of my head, in other words as the day wears on or the more work I do, I wear out easily and wind up having my head sort of hang down. My wife keeps reminding me, head up but sometimes its hard to do where it is such a conscious effort now where it never was before.
I have been going to PT although I stopped about three weeks ago. I saw my neurologist Thursday and she said I don't like the way your head looks and this was 8 in the morning so I mus have been worn out that day! She sent me for more PT and said it is muscular so it should be able to be fixed.
Im wondering what kind of job the surgeon did now as my skin around the incision is still sort of numb where i don't feel touch. Is this normal six and a half months out? I still have range of motion issues and cant look at the sky any more or drink a soda without arching my belly and back out!
