OMG, what an ordeal...surgery was on Oct 15, 2014. After 6 hr surgery they rolled me over and my lungs filled with fluid and I had severe pulmonary edema and went code blue for 25 mins. everything just went downhill...meanwhile I HAD 7 levels fused with all the hardware due to instability of my cervical spine from 3 prior surgeries hardware. I am 66 and live alone. Been home since Oct 20th. 5 days in hospital. Had ICU delerium, etc.
Now pain, hard to sleep..seems like at C 6-7 area is really supe painful. See n/surgeon tomorrow. The cure might have been worse than the disease...anybody out there with this surgery. Any comments feedback appreciated. Tom
