Neck Surgery
« on: May 06, 2019, 04:17:36 AM »

I had my first surgery on my neck a few weeks ago. Fused 3 discs in my cervical spine. Still have a constant headache but my arm is starting to get some strength in it. Hoping to be able to cast soon. Amazing how quickly your out of the hospital after surgery these days. I was out the next day. Only sign of the surgery is a small scar on my neck. Go back in a couple of weeks for follow up appointment and to discuss surgery number 2 on my lower back so I donít have pain in my leg when I walk.

When I had my neck surgery done, I was told not to lift more than 5 lbs for at least 2 months. No activity like Fishing at all.

I pushed it some and my Dr told me I would regret it if I did to much.

It will be 3 years in December since mine was done and I'm starting to get some real pain back in that same area again. Last time the Dr said "it was a real mess in there" and the supposed 30 minute procedure took over 3 hours. I had a ton of Arthritis built up on the "wings" of the vertebra that was stopping me from turning my head to the left and off and on causing my left arm to become useless for up to 30 minutes at a time.

I wish you Total Success with yours. Living in and with Pain--especially neck pain--- is no joke.

Eternal Optimism. It's what drives me to fish. Next cast is THE cast that will provide the reason why I am here. Big Bass, Small Bass, No Bass-- Everyday and Every Time out learn something. What worked and what didn't and why. In the end go enough days and then, Today is the day that it will all come together and the Fish Gods will smile.

Thank you for keeping me in your prayers. I have no choice but to follow Doctors orders. My wife makes sure of that. Still having bad headaches but have some feeling and strength returning to my right arm. That will come with time.

What are the doc's saying about the head aches, will they go away with time?

Here's my hardware from last October. Overall, it was a success but I'm still not 100%.  I've fished 3 tournaments this year and find that my shoulders and neck area are smoked after a day on the water. A few ibuprofen and I'm back at it. I was a co-angler for our state tournament last week and rode with a guy who had a 20' Phoenix that seemed to have only one speed. I was hanging on for my life. The neck faired well but I was a little nervous.

The Doctors arenít sure about the headaches. Surgeon says when I fell at work I may have hit my head. Seeing the neurologist for a follow up appointment after my Botox injections. Neurologist says it could take 5 to 6 treatments before any relief.

My hardware in my neck is similar to yours. Hoping it works.

Saturday the 4th my younger brother just had surgery on his neck. His left arm was no longer working and he had zero feeling in at least 1 finger. Immediately after surgery when he woke up he wanted to test his ability to push on my hand just to see if it was any better. Immediately he said for me not to shoot him.  lo Prior to surgery he had insisted I kill him if he came out a vegetable. :shocking: I know he was stressed big time over this.

He also had headaches for a day or two afterwards but those went away. He also had small spasms where his eyes would close and he would tense up for 10 to 15 seconds and he had no control. He said those have also went away. They think it was the medication.   

I hope all of you have great recovery.
