Tomorrow I will be 2 weeks post op for a cervical disc replacement c3/4. I see my surgeon for my 2 week follow up on Tuesday, and assuming that goes well, I will board no fewer than three airplanes to get me back to Naples, Italy, where I currently reside.
I am nervous about the long flight, which is about 8 hours. Even with a travel pillow around me, I cannot comfortably rest (put my head down) as I am used to doing every few hours here.
The pain meds do manage the pain for the most part (but I HATE them).
I am seriously considering paying a ton of money to upgrade to business so that I can recline.
Has any one had to deal with this?
