I'm new to this forum but looking for advice on upcoming surgery. Need a two level fusion C5-6 and C6-7. I'm also a bowler and it is a source of income for me. The dr. is saying recovery should be approximately 6-8 weeks. I'm just wanting to know what to expect post op and during recovery. Either way i've been in pain for over 2 years and treating with medications and injections have not helped.. I'm doing this for long term, 37 yr old male with 4 kids.. Any input would be appreciated..
