I just read of a "Barb" noting she had freed herself from her collar I assuming earlier than dictated to by Dr. She ended up doing well although she had contravened her dr's advise.

I am into my fifth week since surgery and am originally advised I will be wearing till Feb 10 , three months from my ACDF with own bone, titanium plate, etc.

I went to Mall yesterday and carrying bags tired my shoulders out and had to give them to my niece. Then I find it so hot and cumbersome sometimes. I loosen it and hold my neck up a lot myself when sitting and walking-- I NEVER NEVER turn my neck left or right but sometimes tip it.

Have any of you succumbed to the incredible difficulty at times of wearing such a large hard collar? I am interested to hear.

Now today after my visit away from the house I am glad to tighten the darn thing and rest on it.

Just wondering if I am being a "goof" by doing this or just being normal since I am five weeks post op and wasn't doing this in the first month.

Thanks guys.
