My mom helped my find the right neck brace that I'm supposed to wear, I had to order it online because apparently the general population has a short neck. Boo to all of you short necked people! It was hard to find something that was tall enough without being huge length-wise. I learned something new - the circumference of my neck is 13 inches. Who knew.
I still wait to improve. I'm sleeping better, although now I'm sleeping a ton. Maybe that means my body is healing and needs a lot of rest. I hope so. I still have headaches, worse than before the surgery, as well as aches in my neck and legs. I will wait and see what 2 weeks wearing a neck brace does and then go from there I suppose.
