Recovery from Cervical discetomy fusion C3-C7

I'm 4 weeks out of neck surgery, and I feel as though the surgery was a sucess, but I'm starting to have a cramping between my shoulders, dizziness and headaches.  I'm wearing my soft collar for support, but still having trouble.  Is this a normal part of healing?  I also have numbness in my left thumb and at the base of my neck in the back.  Will that come back?

Is there anything written about the recovery process for a cervical disectomy fusion?  I had one done 05/21/09 and I'm feeling fine, but I have pain in my neck from my chin to my lower neck -- feels like pulling muscles.  I'm sure (I hope) this is normal and, of course, the "bones" hurt in my neck.  I used to be an active person and I am looking forward to exercise again... when can I???  We bought a Wii Fit and I've tried it out, so as long as it isn't an impact on my spine I should be fine, right?

you will be fine (soon), but some cases of patients in continuous stress may take additional months
