I am due to undergo the above surgery in the next few weeks and wonder if anyone has had this operation and what the recovery period is also success or not of fusion. I had ACDF of C3 to C4 in 2010 and PLIF + rebuild in 2008. On 3/11/11 I had 2 neck injections to hopefully give me pain relief and on 10/11/11 I am due another 2. Many people have told me that they have suffered great pain after a Posterior Cervical Operation and for many weeks after!! Will Surgeon join up this fusion to previous one?
