1 Week post surgery

Hello all, tomorrow will be 1 week since I had my C7 T1 ACDF surgery. The pain is nowhere near as intense as it was prior to surgery. That being said I still am in a lot of pain and my right arm and hand is still very week. My surgeon said that the nerve was in pretty bad shape (frayed) if you will. Just wondering if anyone else here has had the same surgery and what was you recovery like? 2 years ago I went thru C5 C6 C7 ACDF surgery. I don't remember being this sore from that surgery. I am just glad that they were able to reach it without having to remove part of my collar bone as they stated right before the rolled me into the OR!!! Yikes if I wasn't on edge already!!
