I am scheduled for a 3 level acdf fusion on 11-29-16 & I am beyond nervous. I'm ready to HOPEFULLY feel better, but I'm afraid of the aftermath. I am a CNA and I've been one for the past 14 yrs, so I really don't know anything else to do. I was also accepted into the LPN program for January's class. I haven't accepted yet BC I am not sure if I will be able to continue to do this type of work. My ? tonight is, what are the permanent restrictions after this surgery? Will I be able to continue to work in a Nursing Home? Or should I look for other options?
