6 Weeks and counting down to my 8 week check up. I feel pretty good...Only notice the hip problem when I stand too long. Numbness in my finger still comes and goes, but actually goes sometimes. Started to take off my neck brace for a few a little bit at a time, but notice that if I keep it off to long the original symptoms come back, so I just put it back on. I wonder if would have just worn a next brace for 8 weeks, the pain would be gone...Humm.
Hope to have good news in the upcoming weeks. The 8 week x-rays will show if the fusion took or not. If not, I'll be screwed.
