So happy to be on the other side and out of the hospital. I'm feeling pretty good and off pain meds. I'm in a Miami J collar for a month which I never had with my c5-7 fusion. I'm praying I have some improvement. So my question is at what point am I past the surgical pain part of recovery and able to tell whether I'm going to get any benefit from this surgery.
I'm planning on going back to work Dec 1st. Anyone go back to work at 2 weeks?
