Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion
I am wondering if anyone has had a anterior cervical discectomy & fusion and what timeline is reasonable to get back in the saddle (or at least for now the pool ). I am post one week C5-6, C6-7 fusion , feel good, doc says in time my neck will be stronger than it was before, however I don't want to push too fast and screw up for later, eg start getting ready with pool sessions only to screw the neck up so I am out for the season or worse. I am a 3+/4 boater so I don't get into anything too nasty but still want some opinions just to know what to expect
Just wondering if anyone has been through this (or somethig similiar) and what sort of time they allowed themselves and what the results were.
Lifetime supply of vicodin is out so I thought I better go with the actual healing route.
Any info would be much appreciated
