2nd Nighy post-op, the ACDF was a long time coming, is it common for most of the stenosis/spondylosis symptoms to be gone so soon? However, my neck and that are in elevated pain... my Orthopeadic Surgeon has been great, and his recovery time line is shorter than I've read about, but the total fusion time is longer.. which should I prep for? Thanks in advance.
Background, 33 yr old male, C5/C6 fusion, cage/allograft, bilateral stenosis, soft collar...
