Hi all.

I'm scheduled for 3-lvl ACDF C4-7 with hardware on Oct. 21. I've heard a lot of success stories for 1-lvl and 2-lvl surgeries, but I'd sure love to hear some successes and stories from people who are having what I'm going to have. I'm afraid it's going to be a long row to hoe, so any positives will make me feel even better! =D>

Thanks. Can't wait to hear from you!

FYI: NS says I'll be wearing hard collar for 4 weeks, then soft collar for the next 4 weeks, then PT after 12 weeks.
