My husband is scheduled for a posterior cervical fusion on August 27 he has taken the week of August 24, 2015 off for the surgery. Originally it was to be an anterior cervical lamnioplasty, after the mylegram orthopedic surgeon said that it would need to be a posterior cervical fusion, gave him soft collar for after surgery, said only over night in the hospital. My parents have said the amount of time he will be off work post surgical is not enough time, surgery on August 27, 2015 back to work August 31, 2015. We have a 3 year old and a 5 month, that he will have limitations, I am suppose to be in a wedding on August 30, 2015 my husband says there will be no issue, I should be able to attend but that's only 3 days post op. The ortho has made it sound like its a mild and easy procedure. My parents think my husband's expectations are way too high, recovery takes time and think ortho is to surgery happy. Are my husbands expectations realistic, what is involved in recovery, is 4 days enough time off from work. Will there be limitations.
