You are in my thoughts and prayers. It's been 11 years since my fusion. Just remember that you need to take care of you neck. Ask for a TENS unit, get ice packs and heat packs. Keep yourself moving changing positions, do lots of stretches. Ask for some PT to learn home care exercises. And most of all do keep your faith and do something nice for yourself everyday, then do something for someone else! Take care!
Hi Tia, I wanted to take a moment to give you some encouragement! I know what you are going through as I my self have had C1-2 and C4-7 fused with screws/plates/wires. I just had the 4th surgery to fuse C4-5. Believe it or not... it will get better and it can take some time. Of course, after all the surgeries there are pains that don't go away but it is a trade off. Please keep your faith as God is the Great Physician and can heal anything!! Although I am on disability, I still manage to drive (carefully, that is...lol) and I am alive by His grace!!!! I will be praying for you!! A.J.
