      I'm starting this thread hoping to help some people when they are at their worst. Having been an FG board member has been literally my backbone to all my spinal surgery recoveries. Not to stroke, but there are some wise people on this site. Then there are also people like myself: Trained most of your life and keep learning.

      First - blocking and tackling. Get back to basics.
      1. Set up your house
      2. Stock up on healing foods
      3. Be prepared to deal with things
      4. Get active here.

      I have had multiple spine surgeries, conquered cancer, and now had emergency surgery, very short notice. Thank God this was now, not back then. I knew setting up my house: moving things in reach, checklist of supplies for two months and also made a list of daily/weekly tasks. At first, the hard part: asking for help! This is critical to heal correctly. I'm a beast, I suck it up, all goes out the window following spinal surgery. Your body will be traumatized. This is also why I planned ahead with my Sativa & Indica strains of weed + cbd/cbn soft gels. Is what it is but I can assure you that being relaxed far exceeds sucking it up in the long run.

      Stocking up on healing foods is a no-brainer but again, think it thru before surgery. My surgery this time was the second cervical spinal fusion. This is typically done through the throat however because I already had that done from the front and I had my thyroid removed, i should plan to lose part to all of my vocals. Hence, my decision to do a posterior approach. The problem with this though is that the neck and trap muscles would be cut. Painful recovery, however, the wake up for me on the second week following is that I discovered if I didn't eat steel-cut oatmeal or heavily carb up, I couldn't walk very far. Literally doubled my distance if I had steel-cut an hour or two before attempting to walk. The surgery was too demanding so not enough fuel to walk also. Simple and my stupidity but important enough to share here with you. Clean carbs are a must!

      Things are going to happen following any surgery. Balance can be off, depression, pain, etc. Recovering from any surgery can give you time to think. Yes, it hurts, sucks, elephant in the room. However, although you may have lost physical function and need to rest, recover; exercise your mind. Better yet, spend an hour a day here learning.
