I think the fusion will help the headaches after healing from the surgery, and you will have pain meds for the post op period, so no worries. I had a fusion several years ago, anterior incision, and found it to be not too bad. The stiff collar is a pain in the neck (no pun intended), but overall, it was less painful than other things I've been through, like sinus, back surgery and childbirth. Hopefully, you will graduate to the soft collar quickly and that is more comfortable. It is never fun, but in the long run, you'll be much more comfortable. Next time you buy a car, get one with back up camera, as turning your neck very far will be limited somewhat.
