Post Surgery Hospital Stay
Hi all, I was told I would be in hospital overnight after my surgery ACDF C5-6, I have 4 cervical disc herniations with severe DDD, DJD bone spurs and others. My neuro is only fusing one level at this time, I received phone call from neuro office and the nurse said my hospital stay would be 2-3 days or more because everyone is different. I have asthma and other respiratory ailments but the neuro knew that on my first visit when I was told by him and the nurse my stay would only be overnight. I would like to know if this happened to anyone else, I know Vin had a long stay but for other reasons. I am a little confused because the neuro and his nurse first told me only one night stay in hospital but are now saying 2-3 days. Thanks all and God Bless, Joe
