Hi SpineAZ,
I am trying not to push myself to return to work. My employer does believe that I need to concentrate on my recovery. In fact the principal of my school called me today and reassured me not to come back too soon and to take my time. He has been very understanding and helpful since September. I just wanted to know if it was at all possible to come back part time. Unfortunately it is not. But it was worth a try. I have also spoken to a coworker who lives nearby to confirm that I can catch a ride to work with her so that I don't have the stress of driving whenever I choose to return to work. My supervisor at the district office also emailed me not to push myself to come back before I have had sufficient time to recover. Her husband had a single level ACDF a number of years ago. So she has personal knowledge of the recovery. That helps. I am putting the pressure on myself. Thanks for being there to make sure I don't do too much. I am completing some neck exercises that they said I can do to increase ROM. Time will tell. How long does it usually take to start to see some bone growth. Somewhere I remember reading that it could take 3 months for bone growth to begin but complete fusion can occur between 6 - 12 months. Is that accurate?
