Hi all, I recently had my op to stabalize my c1/c2 as my neck was listing 8.5mm to the right. This was caused by the traverse ligament rupture, although I have no idea how or when this occurred. I had seen many osteopaths/chiropractors and physio and consulted drs on many occasions without being diagnosed. Then in April I tried a new chiropractor who refused to treat me as my neck was very unstable. I was lucky not to have too much pain more discomfort really and am now 4 weeks post op and on 50% of my pain meds that were issued when released. I have been doing my exercises and take the soft collar off s couple of hours a day, movement is coming back slowly and progress is good.
Can anyone say when they got back to work? My 1st post op Ith the specialist is not for another 2 weeks and I am still just doing the exercises given?
