ACDF Recovery Planning

Hi All,

I'm considering having a two level ACDF procedure done (C5/C7) in the New Year and am trying to put together a viable recovery plan.

One key question for me at the moment relates to pain meds immediately post op. Here in the UK it's not possible to get morphine prescribed outside the hospital environment but I have bad reactions to many other meds (Tramadol in particular)

I'd be interested to know what pain meds people here used in the first month and what the effectiveness of these were as this may inform my decision whether to go ahead now or wait longer before committing to surgery.

Thanks in advance.
