I am 5 days post ACDF level C5/C6 and doing really well. I did a lot of reading on this site before surgery and got a lot of good ideas on how to cope with the first few days post op so I just want to say thank you to all of you. I had a lumbar discotomy back in January and it took a long time to recover so I was scared going into this surgery. So far, I am glad I did it. I have been able to sleep on my left side for the first time since June!
