Hi everyone. I am new to these forums but I feel that the best advice I can get is from those who have actually experienced what I am about to experience. I am scheduled to have a 2-level ACDF surgery on January 09, 2008 on C5-C6 and C6-C7. I am told that I will be required to wear a hard cervical brace following the surgery. I would like to know what things can be done to make things easier for me and make me more comfortable after surgery? I would also like to know whether the people who have had this surgery would have it again if they were in the same situation? Thanks in advance for any and all responses.
