I'm now 3 weeks post op from ACDF c6-7. Went to ark. this weekend and helped 2 college age children move really just supervised. I was proud of myself. Brought pillows to ride in the car for comfort took pain med and muscle relaxer for 4 plushour trip. Felt great, walked down to lake next day severe pain gone.
But I did a stupid thing a friend asked me to go on the new pontoon boat thought it was slow. It wasn't and now I have had muscle spasms and pain since. I probably feel like I did first week again. I'm sure that I strain something with the force of the ride. I know it will get better but for all of you that think well it will be no big deal to ride in a boat.... please don't the force is more than you think. Just thought I would update you on the latest.
