Default Surgery friday

Time to fix the ole neck this time! Told my wife I'm like a car that has a shit load of miles on it and is falling apart! Disk replacement in C 6-7 with a single fusion at the same level. Hope to be back to work light duty in a week and back to full work in 6 weeks ( he thinks 8 but I'm optimistic). Should have no restrictions and hope to get back to bjj asap! Later fellas

Good luck OFD. Spent 4-5 days in your hood last week. No offense, but i can't deal with that concrete jungle. Was glad to get gone. Hoping for a speedy recovery.

Good luck man! I know it will be tough to relax and rest but it's for the best long term. You'll be back to rolling before you know it. I've been hitting bjj 3x a week coming up on a year and just started back lifting about a month ago. Helps stress but some days I feel high mileage too... fortunately no major injuries yet other than a dislocated rib.

Do you think bjj caused your back issues or was it wear and tear from your job?

My wife had a similar surgery last year. In 5-6 weeks she was good to go. You will do great!

My 3 pm surgery started at 8
And I was out at 9:45. Good news is they did get approval for the disc replacement and only had to fuse 6&7 not 4-7 like they thought they might.
In not pain right now and wife is in dropping of the RX on our way home. Thanks for all the texts and well wishes! Can't wait to get back to work, offshore and on the mats.....
