I am sleeping well and went back to work after a little less than a week after my surgery.
Before surgery I was in constant neck pain and some numbness and tingling on my left side. I am still having pain in my neck on occasion (still healing after surgery). It does not sound like ground glass in my neck when I walk now. (It did before surgery). I am sleeping well and went back to work after a little less than a week after my surgery. I am having a lot of pain down my arms, but it has only been 6 weeks, and I have been reassured that this was normal. I am able to turn my head better. I am sorry to say that my husband and I did not have sex the day after my surgery, despite Dr. McCord saying we could. Dr. McCord said it was possible, but I can say it was not remotely probable.
The last surgery I had was my third by Dr. McCord. I have been very pleased with the results of the first and third surgery. The second surgery never healed properly, causing the third surgery. I think this was due to a lot of factors, none having to do with Dr. McCord. (I smoke, not great nutrition, going back to work too early, etc.). I am still healing from the third surgery, but the pain that caused that surgery seems to be gone. Dr. McCord and his staff have always made me feel like I was a priority. I tell anyone at home (N. Alabama) about him (that is having neck/back troubles). I really think I would be in terrible shape if I had not come to him.
