Thankfully, all is a-okay with the CAT scan. The unremarkable results were sent to my primary physician, and we'll do a follow up scan in three months -- just to be on the safe side.
Surgery is set for next Wednesday, 2/27. I recall someone mentioning practical items to have on hand following surgery. Straws, front buttoned shirts/nighties, pillows of various sizes are some I remember. Anything else? I'm a subscriber in good standing at Netflix! Any other helpful hints?
I'm anticipating an overnight in the hospital and 6-8 weeks recovery. Walking is a must as soon as I can following surgery. I already have collars (one regular, one for shower) and have been told to wear them always, at least until my 6-week follow up.
Do any of you have any input on the iliac graft? I was told it may be more painful than my neck!
Many thanks in advance to the very kind folks on this site!
