I had C5-6 ACDF on 9/23/11. Thus far, I have the typical recovery type pain (incision, neck and shoulder blades), mild difficulty swallowing and insomnia. All of which I will discuss with my NS at my 2 week follow-up visit, in a few days. I'm driving myself. This will be my 1st time driving and I feel comfortable.
) I plan to return to work (desk job) 6 weeks post-op.
What are some good questions that I should ask my NS at my post-op visits?
