    15 days till my 4 level ACDF

    Just want to first off thank everyone that's posted things on here they have been very helpful. This is my first post here. I have a couple of questions I was hoping to get answered by someone that's been threw this. My surgeon told me I will have to wear a hard callor for a while. My first question is how does the neck end up feeling after a few weeks being in it. Does the muscles start acting cause of lack of use or is it pretty easy on the body.
    After the surgery how is your balance. Do you need to use a walker or a cane to make sure you don't stumble and mess everything up. Or am I over thinking everything. It's my first major surgery. I have had a couple of bulged disc operated on in my lower back but those where short stay surgerys with short lived restrictions So it wasn't hard to fallow doctors orders
