Oh you poor thing - being in hospital for so long is awful no wonder you feel low. I have just had C 4/5/6/7 fused and they got me walking about same day and home within 3 days. Talk to the nurses, ask to see the anaesthetists - the most common fear they deal with is not waking up and they can be SO reassuring. Ask for consultant to come and see you and answer all your questions (demand if need be - I know that's the last thing you feel up to but do you have a DP who could demand on your behalf?) BIG gentle hug to you thanksthanksthanks
