My 87 year old mom fell in the bathroom. Luckily I was there so didn't move her or get her up. She fractured her neck at C1. They are not doing surgery because of her age so she'll go to rehab for 2-3 months they said. Can anyone give me a realistic healing time? 2-3 months is for people who are young and heal well. I have a feeling that this will take much more time to heal and I know that mom will be a bear wearing this hard neck brace.
