Hello All, I am new to this forum and have already read a lot that has helped. I am a 30 year old female having one level ACDF on 1/16 at C5-C6 with hardware. I keep getting mixed reviews of what the post op pain and recovery will be like. Any advice from anyone who had the same thing. I will be in the hospital overnight, given a soft collar for a few days, and percocet post op. My husband will be home with me for 2 weeks to help me at home.
My concern is, I am a manager for a large bank, and my boss has advised I should not come back until I can be back full time. What time frame do you think this will be? I am currently anticipating 6 weeks, but I would like to know from others who went through it. Thank you all for any feedback.
