Hi new here, i had my op on 14th Feb, after nearly a year of constant agony and numb fingers on the left i had a " C6/7 Anterior Cevical Discectomy and Fusion, the result was instant pain free apart fron incision at the front of my neck and throat area, nealry 3 weeks on and feelin good, throat still bit sore and index finger on left had still numb but feels "different", the bak of my neck feels a bit tender at times and sore/stiff in the mornings, still bit wary about how much movement i should be doing? im not sure what the surgeon replaces the disc with he said a cage but not sure what that means, is it metal plastic or what?? would love to get back into the gym but havent been given advice on this or how long till the neck is completely fused with cage?? was told 6-8 weeks recovery but nothing about returning to work as support worker?? i am 46 and so far feels great..
