I am heading into surgery tomorrow morning. ACDF 5-7.
I have always been in good physical condition and the last 6 months of pain have really been an eye-opener.
This is my first major health issue and it has been scary. Most of the online websites cover the technical aspects of the procedures but not the human aspect.
I found this board to be very helpful. I wanted to drop a quick thanks to all the posters for their honesty and willingness to discuss sensitive subjects. Your posts have made me feel better and have given me a good feel for what lies ahead.
Best wishes to all.
