5 days ago I had Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion (ACDF) surgery due to a Herniated Cervical C7 Disc. Fusion was done for C6-7. I am home, recovery 6 weeks with neck brace. No driving, streneous activities, etc. I'm experiencing quite a bit of pain what feels like the area where I had surgery (upper middle area of shoulder blade/base of neck) It also feels very heavy like I have a set of weights permanently lying on my neck. Is this normal post surgery pain? If so, how long does it last?
