:S Hello, I am in England and next Friday I am having C3/4 ACDF surgery. I don't know what to expect after surgery. Will I be able to move my neck, will I have to wear a collar, will I be able to swallow? Has anyone had this surgery, I can't sleep properly because I am so worried. Apparently the spinal cord is bulging out between the two vertebrae and the sugery is being done to release the cord and fuse, with a metal plate, the two together. How will it affect movement? Any advise from anyone would be so welcome. Thank you.
