I found this site and would like to introduce myself. I am post acdf since 12/3/13 and am in therapy and still have pain and occasional headaches. I had a 2 level with 3 screws and titanium plate. The pain has improved with time, still have hand weakness which I was told is c6-7 and I am hoping this will come around. I have a great therapy team and they are associated with purdue, the colts, brewers, pacers, and notredame in Indiana. My next apt will be in a week and I will have x-ray to see how healing is going. I am a Nurse and had a fall with rotator cuff injury and surgery and spine injury and surgery also, I am worried about return to work and function with my hand and arm as a nurse. I had a severe tear to the rotator cuff so I have leftover issues from that and post neck surgery wondering if I can go back as a nurse with the physical nature of the job. Rehab has been challenging but I will give it my best shot and reach for the highest level I can get too. Good luck to all.
