    Post Solving ACDF Throat Pain

    I had ACDF with fusion and corpectomy. Another patient...with the same doctor...had the same procedure. My throat improved iwthin about 3.5 days....however, the other patient did not imprrove.

    Here was the difference. I used an ultrasonic humidifier with lots of eucaplytpus and teatree. When my throat would gag and get really bad, I would sit in front of that humidifer. It would help pretty quickly.

    I really believe this made a big difference in recuperation. Iwant other people to know. I even had the humidifer in the hospital!
