I have only posted once here before, but have read everything posted over the last few months in order to get a good understanding of what is to come. I am scheduled for an ACDF c6-c7 with cadaver bone and hardware on April 24th. Kind of nervous, but I've had good feedback on my Doctor from previous patients so that makes the decision a little easier. Just looking to get back to normal again.....
I am to wear a soft collar for a few weeks and then wean myself off as I see fit.
Any ideas on recovery time for this? I am 39 and fairly healthy. Had a micro-discectomy 11 years ago L4-L5, is the recovery similar?
