Hello all,
I have to be there for 6am, surgery is set for 8am. Thank you to all who has posted your experinces - it helps soothe my fears and makes me hopeful.
I will post about my experience afterwards - when I am able.
Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers, as I keep all of you.
Thanks and stay safe, Kris


  • i think being first on the list is a great thing.. not so much hanging around! i certainly will pray for you and look forward to hearing all about it! i wont say sleep tight tonight cos i admit i didnt sleep a wink the night before! but if you can... great! ;-)
  • Good luck Kris I had same surgery on 7/10/2012 I am in a hard collar and still have some pain but is different then before surgery. The left side of my neck was really bad with the pain going from neck to shoulder to arm but that was gone after surgery. I am just beginning my post op phase so I can't tell you much except I know I had to have surgery no other options. Any questions feel free to pm me. Joe

  • Good luck for Monday's surgery.
    There are plenty of members here who have had great relief from their surgery. Most of them are no longer visiting this site because they are back to their life and too busy and no need for the support here.

    I hope you will be one of those (in the nicest way possible!).
    Do come back and tell us how you are doing. The support from others here is great through your recovery.

    Have a great weekend and try to do something special to spoil yourself.

  • I had my acdf c6/c7 surgery on Monday. The recovery is going really well for me and Im sure it will go great for you too. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
