ACDF and dizziness

I had ACDF surgery last Monday -4/15/16.
Suregoon said everything went well and looks good initially.
I was feeling great up until the Thursday following surgery. I now have dizziness when I walk around. I am fine sitting , standing still and lying down but when I walk, I get woozy and unsteady. Not bad - no nausea.
The doctor says it's not common to have this issue. Has anyone here experienced dizziness and if so, what was your cause snd how did you treat it?

The Surgeon said I can go back to my desk job in 2 weeks of all goes well. Thanks!

    Hang on, the doctor said that it is uncommon?  Did he say anything else?

    Two weeks to get back to work is possible, but be aware that you may need more rest as you will be doing some serious healing still.

    Good luck.

    Hi Bruce, the doc said he thought it was uncommon from his experiences but my Chiro and some I know who have had the surgery says its quite common. I want to know which is it? 
    Is there something else going on or am I just too impatient to let this heal.

    i would love to know if others experienced dizziness and if so, how long it lasted and what was done to alleviate it. Thanks.
