Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
3 Days Post-Op and feeling great!
First of all, :X Happy Valentine's Day to all! I'm reporting in to say that my ACDF surgery of C5-C6 went extremely well! I'm off narcotics and only using Tylenol and muscle relaxants. Most of the pain has gone with residual pain in shoulders and left arm only. My dizziness and headaches are also gone.
My only real complaint is my throat. I have difficulties swallowing sometimes and I have the sensation of a lump in my throat. Last night I was taking my stool softener and it got stuck in my throat and started to burn. Eventually, I was able to get it down.
I have no pain where the incision is, which is a surprise to me. There's definitely swelling and itchiness because it's starting to heal.
Also, I wanted to thank the people from this forum. It is from your support that put me at ease and made the surgery go so smoothly! I hope to stay on to help others in need for as long as I can! >:D<
