I will be having a 2 level ACDF next week. From what I have read, many of you have trouble swallowing for awhile. Have you been given liquid pain meds? I have a sensitive stomach to start with so I am a little worried about the effects of some of the meds.


  • Just make sure your surgeon understands your stomach issues so they can prescribe accordingly. If you find troubles swallowing the pill crush them in some applesauce. Good luck on your surgery and make sure to let us know how everything goes.
