6 week postop ACDF surgery
I had my 6 week postop check up with Neurosurgeon this morning. X-rays showed that I am fusing with the donar bones! YAY!!!! But the sad news is that I have to wear this hard Miami J brace 24/7 for 6 more weeks. I stopped taking Vicodin a week ago and am just taking Tylenol, Flexeril and Neurontin now.
My PA said I could try to drive if I can turn my head enough. Has anyone driven in the hard collar/brace? I had myelopathy symptoms for over a year before surgery and they continue now. But I still have hope they will improve. :)
