I'm having ACDF Surgery on Friday...

DaveInSoCal thought this was worth mentioning said
36

Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion on C5-C6. They’re slitting open my throat, shoving aside all the junk in there like my trachea, and things like that, the ripping out a disc, scraping off some bone spur, the screwing in a metal spacer and stitching me back up again.
Sounds fun. Anyone else have that done? I’m curious about the recovery experience, specifically timeline.

Thanks!
Oh, I’m a bit nervous, so if you have any horror stories please keep them to yourself. Thanks again!
