Hello all. I will be going in for a 2-level ACDF surgery at C5/6 and C6/7 and I have a few questions I would like to ask. I am scheduled for the 2-level ACDF on January 9th,2009 and following the ACDF surgery and recovery I will have to have lumbar fusion surgery performed at L5-S1. Both areas are causing me a great deal of pain. My question is "Has anyone had herniated discs that required fusions in the cervical and lumbar area and the same time? Were there certain tasks that you performed to help your cervical area but those same tasks caused problems for your lumbar area or vice versa? For example - A recliner or wedge pillow can be great for comfort after the ACDF but will it cause me misery at the lumbar area. I am basically attempting to care for one area without causing more pain and damage to the other. Any suggestions or comments will be greatly appreciated.
