I am now three days post op from a c5-6 ACDF. Accordin to my Dr, the surgery went well. He sent me home after only one night in the hospital. he did not perscribed any neck collor for me to wear
)) over all I feel fine, some soreness from swollowing, eating and moving my neck around, which I had expected. What I am having trouble with is SLEEPING. the first night home I tried sleeping with about four pillows. That did not work as I got up every hour. Last nigh I tried to sleep sideway and was able to get some sleep, but still woke up a lot throughout the night. Since I was not given any type of neck brace, Im afraid that I will hurt myself from a full recovery. Does anyone have any suggestion for sleeping?
