Since my accident and surgeries I have been frustrated there was no place (like a meeting) where you could meet others and share experiences and wisdom about this stuff .... so I'm grateful I found this.
I have only two posts which are centered around recovery from ( C-3,4 and 5,6) respectively. It was never pain as much as being effectively disabled before surgery. Now two surgeries latter Im better but still struggling and fearful that i've plateaued at a level that I'm not at all satisfied with. Anyway, maybe being here I can figure out things a bit.
I met a couple of people who had pretty much the exact same surgeries and they both did outstanding! I feel like they got back to about 95% functionality - It depends on the day but I feel like 65%-75% maybe 80% on a rare day.
I simply don't know what to expect and hope reading other people's stories might help me get some perspective on my own.
