Dave had a 2 level on Thursday, C5,6,7. He had severe compression, but surprisingly minimal symptoms. Anyway, he is walking around here like his only issue is wearing that huge collar. He didn't get much continuous sleep last night. He ended up on a chaise with a pad in the family room. He would alternate between that and a rocking chair with a wedge pillow and ottoman. We will probably look for a recliner when he is allowed to go in the car, after 10 days. We will try to use the wedge and pillows to see if he can get comfortable on the bed. His sister ( a hospital speech pathologist) is amazed how well his voice sounds.
This was not a bad surgery at all!!
