Hi to above posters,
You are all in early recovery. You are going to hurt and I mean a lot. I am five months post op and hurt just as much or more than before surgery. If you do a search top right of page -pain after acdf- you will see page after page after page of people who still hurt years after surgery. Some people do get better and move on and then some like myself hurt longer. I am sorry you hurt but give it some time and pray the above does not happen to you.
