I had my two-week post-op doctor visit today!
Driving restrictions lifted as long as I do not take any pain medications (and no wearing collar). No released for driving into work. Not much problem for me, with laptop I can work anywhere in the world.
I got "fitted" with a Spinalogic Bone Growth Stimulator for my cervical fusion! Not much of a fitting. This thing was meant for lumbar fusions. Basically looks like a game controller steering wheel. It has a cervical "pillow" attached to it to make it useful for cervical fusions.
The good news about this thing is I only have to use it for 30 minutes a day. The bad news is that I probably have to be sitting still or laying down because I cannot see any way to attach it around my neck to keep it in place. It was not meant for cervical fusions at all.
Pain is still the same as I had months prior to my surgery after my car accident in January '09. Not as bad as the month prior to surgery. However, right arm went numb for a half hour yesterday after doing some home PT with the Thermaband exercises.
