Post ACDF Surgery
Just had three level ACDF about two weeks ago. I must say that the pain associated with two lumbar surgeries last year did not bother me as much as this one surgery. The pains come from all directions, neck, shoulders, collarbone. Incision site is fine, though. I am reluctant to take significant pain medications due to the risk of future addictions. I take aleve twice a day, but this doesn't seem to do much good. Can anyone assist as I work this out or tell me of your experiences with this procedure.
