Cervical corpectomy C6-C7 w/fusion C5-T1

I am going today for my 6 week follow-up. Because I had an infection in C6 & C7, I had to have an emergency surgery to have them removed. The doctor then fused C5 thru T1. I have been in a hard collar since the surgery and was told I would have to stay in it for 12 weeks.

I have an appointment this afternoon and hope to hear that they are seeing some healing of the bones.
