I have been reading these posts for about a month now. I am scheduled for C4-7 ACDF in Janurary after about 8 years of problems. I am scared to death of this surgery. I have been reading so many horror stories are there any good results out there.
I am also worried about being out of work for long. I plan to go back in about 4 -6 weeks and maybe work at home (I thank goodness that I have that option) after 2 weeks. Does that sound doable. Also I don't like taking too much pain medication will there be that much pain after surgery that I will need strong medication? Any help would be truly appreciated I am 43 years old and have never had surgery (oh except I had my tonsils out when I was 4).
