C6/C7 Cervical Spine Fusion Recovery
I am new to this forum. I had surgery performed on c6/c7 a herinated disc pressing that was into my spinal cord last tuesday. I am actually feeling OK or better than I expected I would. I am walking here and there and able to climb stairs as well. Five days out I am feeling pain in my neck, shoulders, some headaches here and there along with some tingling in legs and feet which seem normal to me with surgery. Today is actually the first day that I feel kind of crappy.
My question is the recovery process. Can anyone tell me what to expect with the recovery process. How much should I be doing? I looking for, advice, experiences, helpful tips, etc. Overall any information would be helpful. I am a very active person and I know that it is going to take some time to get back into some normal ways of life/excerise but just curious.
Thanks in advance any information would be helpful as I am just not sure what to fully expect.
