I am 5 days post ACDF surgery and I am doing very well. Thanks to this website I was able to prepare myself for the surgery and aftercare. I had a bit of issues with coming out of the anesthesia and the morphine, but once I stopped taking the morphine things started to look up. Now I am at home, by myself (the kids left last night)and I feel that I am doing very well. Hope everything continues to go well.
