=D> <:P #:S <br /> Hello everyone, i just got home from hospital tonite. i had my acdf c5/c6 surgery donel. i am drugged and still have alot of annosetic in me. (spelling ) but i made it through, and i AM on the other side!! i always could not wait to say that! it was not as bad as i thought it would be. when i got to the hospital wed. the 17th, they informed me that they were going to be moving things right along. that doc was running ahead of schedule, so needless to say that was great news, the worst part is waiting for them to come and wheel you down to surgery. i was in surgery within the hr. after prep, and all docs come into talk\ to ya. my surgery took 45 min. i was pretty doped up though, because i had extra pain meds. given because i have RSD . i do not know how that has effect anything yet. i did have some quirky things happen though after. my place in my wrist where they put my IV, had somehow got jarred ;loose. my right had and wrist are HUGE!
all the fluids and morefeen they had given me were running
into my hand, instead of veins. i am typing this with exploding hand. they have me putting ice, and keeping it
elevated, i am on antibiotics , and stool softners, and percosets. the ride home was very tense in the car, i felt
every little bump in the rode, it is about 30 miles. i
also found a big piece of surgery tape in my hair today, good sticky stuff, it was kind of tucked in the back where my hard collar is, and nobody seen it. someone findly worked on it, and got it out, i thought we would have to cut it out. but i screemed , the tape had irritated my scalp also, and was all twisted. also flowers were delivered to my room, and found out they weren't evem mine, athey were to man next door. (bummer) i was disappointed. my my left arm remains still swollen from RSD. He gave me
plate, and 3 screws. and said everything went fine, now i have to deal with all the good stuff..... after like everyone else on here. i will keep everyone informed of my
progress, i know it helps to hear everyone elses stories. i hope to be hearing from you all. always LEO
