  • I had a three level fusion C3 C4 C5 with corpectomy it was the anterior approach. I was off work 3 months, wore a neck brace. Stayed home unless I had a doctors appointment. I was in the hospital 1 day. I don't think I will give you all the details because what pain I felt may be different for you. I will say take your medicine exactly as the doctor prescribes. Get up and walk as much as you can. Each week and day your pain will vary. Get plenty of rest and don't exhaust your self.

    I am married and we have a spare room so we fixed it up to make me comfortable. It has a tv, phone, bath, end table in reach with my iPad, medicine, coaster for my drinks, remote etc. this way his schedule didn't wake me and I wasn't bothered. The room is next door so my family checked on me. It was on main floor too so there were no stairs.
