    Dlc - Welcome to Spine-Health,

    I am personally amazed at how my recovery times varied from different neck surgeries.  The factors that affected me and my progress were just as varied.  When I thought I was well enough to return to work I did and I added to the on going condition(s)

    If and when I had symptoms I considered to be abnormal post surgery - I would speak to my surgeon because he has actually seen my bones and discs and should be the only I received direction from.

    I you have concerns about your post op status - You should be best served by contacting your surgeon's' office or other Licensed M.D. or D.O. physician provider.

    Warm Regards,
