Considering ACDF surgery. Looking for opinions and feedback.

  • Hi there, Linda:

    Welcome. What is your doctor/surgeon saying about potential surgery?
    What are your symptoms? How long have you been dealing with them?
    What other treatments have you tried before considering surgery?

    I had a very successful ACDF C3/4 and C4/5 surgery on October 26, 2012, so just about 5 months ago.
    I posted a journal of my experience on here if you want to read about an ultimately positive experience.

    Maybe you can offer some more information about your situation since it is not a 'one size fits all' kind of response one can give.

    I imagine you will receive a lot of feedback and a lot of information about personal experiences from others on the board, too.

    The more info you can provide, the better.
