They did it with my own bone graft. Able to eat better than last time when it was C3-4-5-6. Taking pain medicines on schedule, but I'm already tired of sitting in the lounge chair or sleeping. the neck brace is irritating. Blood sugar is higher than normal but not the 250 that the nurse said to return to ER. I did go out for a 15 minute walk per post-op orders yesterday-raining today. Feeling like a "crazy lady" already with 6 weeks to rest per dr. orders. Feel bad complaining when some of you are in much worse condition.
