Hi, I'm 28 y.o. I am 3 weeks after corpectomy of C6, fusion C5-7 with plate.
The surgery went well Smile no pains.. nothing.. symptomes were improved.
Before the surgery, the surgeon said that i will be able to play football 3 months after the surgery. He also said that in the first 1.5 months, a new bone is built around the cage and fuse C5 to C7...(to make it all like 1 bone).
My question is: what happen in the second 1.5 months of the 3 months? What avoids me to start running gradually and even playing football slowly?
