I am 48 yrs old, not in great shape pre-surgery, full time career woman with
2 children ages 13 & 8. I am lucky to be
married to a wonderful man for 24 yrs. I had C67 ACDF with
graft , plate & screws on 8-19-08. Initally I felt really good. The Dr's said I looked the be
st of any patient they'd seen the day after surgery & the nurses expressed surprize at my getting around by myself. The 1st week post-surgery I had pretty much no pain...as if I hadn't had surgery.
