I had my ACDF with plating at C6-7 on the 16th. I am disappointed I didn't get "instant" relief of the left hand and arm tingling that so many here seem to have. The pain is better though. I had an ACDF at C5-6 11 years ago with instant relief of pain,etc so of course I am worried now. I also have a pronounced left eyelid droop - has anyone here had this post-op? My voice also sounds like Minnie Mouse - I wonder how long that will last. Thanks for letting me share.
