Im having acdf and am worried about recovery and weight gain. Is there any way to lose? Thanks


  • Hi there antbeggs, 
    My husband had 2 fusion, cervical, done. He was up and wandering around the house, minus the stails, and doing well. If you have a food addiction, nothing will change. If you are concerned about a minor weight gain, don't. Your  body will use up most of the calories to heal. Keep an eye on your calories, if that's how you monitor your intake.
