I want to give you some HOPE! I had a single level acdf only 2 weeks ago. So I'm pretty new to this. But I've suffered from migraines my entire life. After the accident my headaches were severe and daily but different from my migraine. After my acdf I have only had 1 headache and my pain meds took care of it. I am still in some discomfort from the surgery, but oh my I am soooo glad I had it done. I hurt like crazy for from about day 3 to day 9 post opp. Your muscles tighten real bad, so I was constantly taking my pain meds. I barely take them now. I feel so much better and my headaches which were constant for months are gone! So there is hope! Good luck!
