I am a week from two level acdf. Guess what? My neck pain is almost gone. The last three days I have taken just a few pain pills. For the last three years my neck has been hurting almost nonstop. Maybe it's adrenaline pumping because the fear of surgery is almost here. I have to laugh, I was really wanting my neck to hurt bad before surgery.
I am am wondering if anyone else on SH has had this happen? I am still going through with surgery because I know I need it but what if this is for real? What should I do? This makes me want to run head first into a brick wall. After all if I am going to have surgery I want to feel I really need it. The calm before the storm I guess.
ps. I can't believe this is happening to me. If I call off surgery my wife will kill me, she says it took me three years to get here and I better go through with it if I know what's good for me.
