First of all, great forums here. I tried searching for this particular question but could not find much unfortunately.
My girlfriend is scheduled to have cervical fusion surgery (posterior, autograft, C4 & C5) in a few weeks. I want to help make her recovery as easy as possible for her.
I was hoping to get some suggestions from people who have been there. What are some things that you wish you knew beforehand? What were some of the unexpected challenges you faced? Was there something that people kept doing meaning to be helpful but were making things worse/being annoying? Things all the medical guides don't tell you.
I know this may be a difficult question as everyone's recovery/experience will differ; I just really want to make this as good as possible for her.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this.
