My newest script is two tens and a ten. The pain levels continue to stay low even with the gradual drop-down in controlled pain medicines. December is the target month for closure.
I have also regained all of my mobility and flexibility and have graduated from physical therapy. The range of motion measurements are identical on both sides. My family including myself will be doing the 5K Chicago foam glow this weekend.
The only things left are to regain strength and stamina and wind down to zero on the medications. ACDF, SLAP repair, and Opiates, it can be done.
