Having a C7-T1 ACDF with bone graft and hardware on Monday June29th. Possible C6-7 fusion also. Doing the same as others here, worrying while compuslively searching everywhere online for reassurance. Already had 3 posterior laminectomy-diskectomy surgeries at L3-4, L4-5, L5-S1 and C6-7. Now the ACDF. The shoulder pain and arm zaps are really bad, but there's no avoiding this pre-op terror. Thinking about the hardware behind my adam's apple and the hip incision eliminates any chance of relaxation or sleep. I'm pacing the house, wishing I'd waited, though I know it's got to happen. Lots of pain meds may be screwing up my mind. This is terrible.
