had ACDF c3-7 on august 4th 2015. previously had c1-2 fused in 1982. that makes c1-7 fused. anyone else like this? i am not using pain meds even though it would be nice but i was on them for 2 yrs previous to surgery and am partially addicted. pain meds creep up on you. sleeping is most difficult with a miami J hard collar i have to wear for 1 month 24/7. morphine and duilaudid post surgery felf too good glad i dont have any now. tire quickly tho with short walks.
