Question postop: Wondering how long wear cervical brace after fusion

I had my 8 week postop yesterday, was very discouraged to hear I must wear this soft cervical collar 24 hours 7 days a week. My first surgery, I wore it only when in car. Was done with it by 12 weeks.

Just wondering how long everyone else wore theirs and how tired of it were you by then?
