My dad, age 80, is about to face the anterior lag screw surgery and would like to hear about other people's experiences with recovery.
Did you use a neck brace? How long did it take to go back to your usual activities? Did you have complications? Did they resolve?
Anything you've got to say about this surgery, including things that surgeons told you about it would be most appreciated!
