Laura & Susie, Thank U for Ur words of encouragement i definitely needed it. i noticed i hadn't even stated what this surgery was...Lol
They went in thru the anterior (front) side of my neck. They operated on
C-4/5, C-5/6, C-6/7...Extra plates, pins, screws, and 3 or 4-cadaver bones for fusion. Oh, and i was very surprised when i was discharged that they gave me the information from the Donor's family that donated these bones for me to contact them if i want too. What a blessing from what this family did.
P.S. I know a lot of people have had this surgery so my thoughts and prayers go out 2 any and all of us greatful patients.
