I had ACDF two level surgery on May 10. I'm in a soft collar, and I'm allowed to take it off. I have to wear it while on my walks, and while in the car. The weather is getting hot, and with daily perspiration, I'd like to be able to buy a new one so that I can wash the one I have. Can you buy them in a pharmacy? I live three hours away from my surgeon and the hospital where I had surgery... It's sort of a torturous drive at the moment.
