Well the incision seems to be healing well (Dr agrees.) I have a huge band aid rash/sore around the incision area however not bad. My neck is still stiff in middle back however my fingers are not numb except a tiny bit in the tips of my thumb and index. Dr said I can wean off the brace within the next 3 days. He said to start moving, turning my neck and bending .Start moving around slowly. Then within a couple of weeks, I can drive again. (Thank Goodness). Dr also said incision looked good from x-rays that brackets and screws were all in the correct place. He said it takes about 2 1/2 months for the fusion to start. I have a check up next month.
I have to follow up with my regular doctor, I had elevated pulse, and have had a pain right above my stomach in center (indigestion, gallbladder?) I had elevated pulse and low oxygen while I was at hospital but after 3 days, I checked myself out of the hospital. I checked out after two EKG's and blood work--both fine.My surgeon told me it would be a overnight stay. (The story is much longer however lets just say that I will not be going to that hospital ever again.)
Above I am pointing at the scar but its hard to see in picture. Also, please excuse me, still no makeup or hairstyle.
Have a great day! I want to thank you all for dropping by my blog and wishing me a quick recovery. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers. Hugs. Kim
