New person here. I just got word today that I need to get a fusion done on the c5/6 6/7 September 15th. I am extremely nervous about it. This the result of a car accident back in 2011. I have read a lot of the postings on here and it seems like so many have had bad results.. I get the fact that 90% of the people who have had good results probably are out living life vs. posting on a website. Could some of you tell me what I am in store for from post op perspective? The Doc is using a cadaver bone graft and will be entering from the front of the neck.
A little about me I am 43 in great health, besides the neck
. Have participated in martial arts pretty much all of my adult life, lift weights, cross fit, etc... Has any one had any luck getting back to where they were prior to surgery or pretty close? I know my competing days are probably behind me but how about training?
Any input would be greatly appreciated...
