I'm new on here, I have cervical fusion next wed. between c5/c6...I've had problems for years, but a new MRI showed the herniation is severe and surgeon wanted to act quickly (is this typical, I've heard they usually exhaust conservative measures?) Anyway, I am wondering what to expect as far as recovery, will it be horrible?! And I take care of my two boys (and husband makes three) full-time, I'm very nervous about being dependent on these guys that normally depend on me!! How long will it take before I can go back to life as usual?
Thanks for any tips or help!
