Hey everyone! Scheduled for a ACDF in February and searching the site for info. What a great site!
I'm so scared! I have a ruptured disc at C-7 and have been dealing with the pain, numbness, tingling now for 6 months. I'm at the end of my rope. I've had PT, ESI's, chiro, ect. and none of it is working. I'm out of options.
I keep hearing about the throat pain and hoarseness...can anyone share their experience with this? Also...how long before you can really go back to work. My neuro said 4 weeks. Is this reasonable or did anyone go back sooner.
I'd appreciate any info or a link to find out more about this surgery/recovery. Thanks!
