Three level c4-c7 acdf set for July 6. I've been waiting to do this since symptoms started in March. I am very nervous about it. Ive had surgery before on my arm but this is different. I am a police officer and will be out for awhile. Also, the week my symptoms started was the week i moved out of the house to give my wife of 22 years a "break" as she said she needed it. I'm still at my parents, waiting for her to hopefully get herself to a point to ask me back home. It has all together been such a terrible mental strain on me. I never thought i could feel so confused and scared about everything. I thought many times about cancelling the surgery. I have two levels of cord compression. I am not in much pain but the ns says one punch to the kneck and I could be paralyzed. So, I'm going to do it. I just hope I can take being at home with my parents. They love me and have been very kind to me but I really want to be down the road with my wife and kids. I guess I just have to have faith that all will workout. I have put a recliner in my room so I hope that helps me. I just have not done well with the loneliness so far and i think it is about to get much worse.
