I am a little over a month post op ACDF and about a month pre-op ALIF. I really can't stand my lack of independence now. I am unable to drive which is huge for me. I feel stuck and hate having to ask for a ride all the time. Also, now I feel like there is no end in sight. My next surgery will be right before Christmas. I can't wait to start off a new year. Hopefully the next year will be so much better. This year has been really tough! Just needed to vent.
