C6-C7 ADR 4 days post op

I had a single level artificial disc replacement surgery at the c6-67 level 4 days ago on 1/26/17 and I also had a posterior foraminotomy at the c3-c4 level on 11/0816. I have 2 more bulging discs at c4-c5 and c5-c6 and mild stenosis from c2 down. I woke up from the replacement surgery with all my nerve pain I've had the last 3 years completely gone which feels amazing, but I'm inot SEVERE pain still along my spine which feels more like bone pain than the pain I had before, and I'm assuming it's "surgery pain" but does anybody know if this is normal and if so roughly how long the "surgery pain" will last? I know I'm still really early in the recovery process and my surgeon tells me every time I see him that I'm "special" because I have so many different problems and I'm only 29, but I thought the pain would be significantly less than how bad it is. I'm sorry if this post doesn't make sense I can't think too clearly from the pain and the meds. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
