I am getting close to my 6 weeks post op for 2 level spinal cervical surgery with fusion to March 7th visit to NS DR. Don't yet know what his answer will be as to how well I have recovered. I am of course in up beat hopes that my bone donor grafts are doing what we all want them to do . FUSE! I know my neck will be super week if i start going without my hard brace.And my arms are so weak and hurt after the 4 nerves that suffered being impinged at c5/6& c6-7. My question is how long has someone else needed to get back in shape after this acdf surgery that I had Jan.23rd 2018 ? How long working with pt sessions? I am a 77 year old female with all this spinal osteoarthritis to deal with. Also last March I had a bilateral L4 laminectomy, and have damaged nerves that cause problems in my legs.So have to be extra careful about walking. Like to read on here from anyone who has recovered and gotten back to getting reasonably ok and active.
