Just would like to ask if there is anyone out there that has had a C1/C2 Fusion. I am just 3 weeks post op and still feeling a long ways from being ok. I also had a bone graft which is very painful in itself. I am only concerned though with the neck pain and stiffness. I can feel the hardware that has been placed in my neck and I am often worried that I will never recover. The fusion was done with a rod & 4 screws with a wire for extra caution. Any advice on recover time or expectations would be greatly appreciated.
