Hi All. Well, I am checking back in again. Had 2 level ACDF on 9/10. The first night in hospital was tough with vomiting and discomfort (not pain). Pain was taken care of. The first day home was pretty good and than I crashed. Lots of nausea. Can't get comfortable. Brace is clostrophobic. On the other hand, I have tons of help and compassion. So, I certainly can't complain about that.I just want to feel "normal" again. I think that even though I read so many threads, I just assumed that since I usually bounce back from everything so easy and am rarely sick, that this would not be as difficult for me. Well, I have learned that I am not "special" when it comes to spine surgery. Well, I think I am on the long road to recovery and am still trying to keep positive.
