I'll probably be having 2-level ACDF later this year, but the more I read about the recovery, the more scared I get. It sounds like ACDF is incredibly painful and that recovery is very long and difficult.
I live alone and have been told that I'll be able to take care of myself after surgery (within lifting, bending, twisting limitations), but it sure doesn't sound so from these forums. That said, my surgeon has a phenomenal reputation; his patients tend to do exceptionally well.
Has anyone out there had a relatively easy time with ACDF recovery?
