Hello, I am new to this forum but at the urging of friend he thought it would help me. I am 39 yo and scheduled to have ACDF at my C5/C6 C6/C7 surgery at RIHospital February 21st. I have never undergone surgery and wanted to know how best to prepare myself for this and what to expect upon coming out of surgery. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am very nervous.
