acdf c5/6-6/7 on august 28th 2006-perfect textbook recovery-little if any pain-flew to washington state for christmas-went on cruise in march 2007. may 2007 start having symptoms again!! CT shows cadaver bone cracked at c 6/7 level and crack has become filled with soft tissue ( i fell in feb of 2007 probably cracked then because fusion was not complete at time of fall.........


  • got a post from the other board i need more imput on NOW where do we go to edit or profile!!!?? Leslie
  • Leslie, you are so funny! I can just see you now, tugging and pulling, trying to get the corners of your bottom sheet in place. At least you WON your battle with the bedsheets. ha ha ha.

    Seriously though, I know what you mean. It is soooo frustrating to do a simple task and then be wiped out. It is like, "What did you do today?" And if you got one simple thing accomplished, give yourself a pat on the back. Life sure is different after a posterior c-spine surgery!

  • now that made me laugh!!! because that was exactly how it was!!! i felt like i was wrestling a GATOR LOL!!! I was so mad by the time i was done!!! }:)
  • Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner. The most exotic sports player on our spine team--gator wrestling first place goes to Leslie.

    My sister eats gator--yuck! I suppose it depends on what part of the country you are from if you like that or not, but for me, I'll take plain old chicken.

  • it does taste like chicken!!! I am a transplant from washington state......when i came to florida to live I thought they were all CRAZY to EAT Gator...but now I am one of those crazy people!!!!! LOL
  • I was raised in Florida, and I [u]KNOW[u] those people are crazy to eat Gator. But since you are not a native of Florida, I'll put you in a diferent category. And I'm not one of the crazies either because I moved out! :D :D :D
