Additional Cervical Spinal Surgery with Rods

Four years ago I had anterior 4 level c-spine fusion. The other day my neurosurgeon says I know need posterior spinal rod fusion from C3-C7 the anterior is from C2-C6. 
Has anyone had this done?

I want to know what if any activity you could no longer do?
What was the recovery time from surgery to return to a quasi-normal activity.
Thanks in advance.
