I am scheduled for C-spine fusion next week, C4-7. I am terrified but also a bit excited. I'm so hoping to get some relief from my pain, it would be awesome if I get even some relief. This will be my first surgery ever and I have no idea what to expect. I'm hoping some of you can offer me some encouragement and help reduce my anxiety. I know there's lots of experience here, please help me with ideas to prepare and that might help with post op. I've already started a list of things I need like pj's, tissues, water bottle, books. All good ideas or suggetions welcome. Dr, is calling in prescript
ion for 2 braces and I've already been told I will be given 6 week of pain medication & then that's it!
Thanks so much, Cary
