For those outside of Facebook who haven’t heard yet, I made it successfully through surgery. My disks were a mess but the surgery went very well.
I’m home now and the majority of the pain is around the incision, which is near my vocal chords, and my throat, both when I swallow. I think both will ease in the days to come.
I’m not a big fan, shall we say, of my neck collar, but what can be done? It’s HUGE!
All in all, in good hands. Not able to do much for now, more as I’m able. Take care and thank you all for your well wishes!
