After speaking with 2 neurosurgeons, I decided to move forward with the operation. They both agreed that ACDF for necessary. So, I'm scheduled for a ACDF on C5-C6 this Friday. I'm very anxious and a bit freaked out, but I can no longer deal with the pain and my symptoms have been getting worse.
What should I stock up on at home? I know I have to be on a soft food diet for at least 2 weeks.
What tips do you have for getting sleep at night?
Any other suggestions would be most appreciative!
