Ten days ago I had my ACDF (one level C5&6). It's a little scary how weak/weird I feel. I would like to hear from others who have had this surgery. What was the time-line for recovery? My surgeon said no driving for 2 or 3 weeks, but what's after that? Will it take 6 mos. to get my wits going again? I'm afraid to read some of the posts on this site that talk about failed hardware. Are there any happy stories?
My arm doesn't feel as numb and my shoulders don't hurt like they did, but wow, my neck feels whacked!
Thanks for any ideas/info.
