2 weeks ACDF post op and tripped.



  • It's amazing how things just work out fine. I had a lot of worries too about "who's going to pick up the kids from school", and other make dinner, etc.... It all somehow fell into place just fine. When people find out about your upcoming surgery they will hopefully offer to help and that is when you graciously accept the help. You'll be more capable than you realize too. It's really only a week that you feel crappy and can't do much. Come week two I was doing laundry, someone else had to bring it down the stairs for me. I could've cooked dinner but my hubby wouldn't let me.
    Just don't pick up your kids. Explain to them that mommy' neck is broken and needs to heal. Keep it simple.
    Don't worry so much. It will all turn out fine. I suffered for 19 months and I don't wish that on anyone. It turned me into a miserable exhausted woman. Get the surgery asap so you can mend and get back to a full life.
