I am going to be going thru the same surgery in c5-c6 in a week or two and I am so worried about the pain. I have been on Dilaudid for 2 1/2 months now (barely works). Since your surgery so such a short time you could help me with what to expect. The Dr. said I would not be able to drive or do anything for at least two weeks. I will stay in the hospital for 1-2 days or longer depending on my pain response (I have a low pain threshold). I am going to Tulsa Ok in Mid to late March to see all my family and want to be able to enjoy my family.
Thank you for any information you can give me.
