I dont wat to sound rude, but these are questions you should ask your doctors BEFORE surgury!
I had 2 level ACDF with my own bone and plate. After 3 weeks I can move my head pretty well side to side, but up and down is a little tight still. You should not notice much restriction of motion with a single level. As far as pain goes, the only pain I had was hip pain for a week or so (well worth it to use my own bone!) and muscle spasms from wearing the collar in my upper shoulders. My neck never hurt at all. As the numbness wears off around the incision, it hurts a little from time to time. The strongest meds I took were Tylenol and I dont take that anymore. Good luck and stay positive and you will do fine..
