Re: July surgery
Jun 1, 2006
I had a C5-C7 ACDF with plates & BMP almost 3 months ago.

I was out the next a.m.

Thus far, I'm actually considered a pretty quick recovery by board standards.

That said, I probably would have stayed in the hospital for five days if I could, looking back. The first couple of weeks are pretty tough for most people, I think. I couldn't lay on my back at all for a long time. I had some post op complications, though, and each person's story tends to be unique. I also had wonderful hospital care and a wife who stayed home for the first two days. As has been written before, it's not a race.

I know many other people have addressed this issue with great suggestions.

I wouldn't be in any great rush to leave the hospital or a rehab unit.
