This is again just a followup to my recovery from acdf 3 discs in Dec. 2011. I am still doing well, all the swelling is gone and I am feeling pretty good. I have so far not gotten my old voice back, I talk in a lower growling voice, I don't know if this will ever go away. They sure do have to move that esophogus alot to do this surgery.
Anyway, i have been back to the surgeon, everything is still fine, and alittle fusion is detected. I almost never use the neck-brace anymore, only when I am tired and my neck hurts. I have had no recovery of function in periphery, but have had PT and it has helped with range of motion in my neck.
I can tell that my neck and upper spine are more stable. Its subtle but i can tell.
Glad I did this surgery in the dead of winter because I am looking forward to being able to get around in my house and yard this spring and summer.
If anybody has any questions I would be happy to answer at least from my own experience.
Thanks, and you all have a great spring!
