Im a athletic young 24 year old male who enjoys everything the outdoors has to offer. My doctor is on vacation for a month and I would like to see if the general public could relate to my situation. Prior to my c6-7 bone fusion , I had zero pain, numbness, or tingling (ROM was really my only loss). Doc said it was best to have surgery while im young and healthy instead of waiting for the herniated disc to collapsed and pinch me. Im 4 1/2 weeks post op now and feel wonderful. Ive been walking on a slight incline hill 2-4 miles for the past 2 weeks, as well as the past week i just started doing girl push ups (30-40) every other day as well as ab workouts like flutter kicks (30 secs 3X). I experience zero pain when doing all of these as well as the next day i feel amazing. I strech very long before and after as well as before going to bed. My question is i dont want a screw to be loose in there and how would i know? I dont have my 1st post op visit with the PA until 2 weeks from now. My ROM is greatly improving everyday as well as my general health. Advice or thoughts on this would be great.
