I had a posterior C3-C5 laminectomy with a fusion from c3-t3 in December. The recovery hasn't been pleasant
but it could've been worse. I had an ACDF on c5-c7 in May 2011 but developed adjacent disc disease above and below. Just curious how many others out there have undergone this drastic of a fusion? Wonder what kind of movement I'm going to have. When will these muscle spasms ever go away? I've got flexaril and that takes the edge off; Soma does nothing. I really don't like to take pain medication unless I have to. I would feel better if the spasms would quit.
I also am curious amount of activity others are doing at 4-6 weeks post op? He told me no lifting or repetitive movement and he want me up moving around. I also have 3 young children so I really have plenty to do, but it still hurts to move too much. Any advice??
