I had a ACDF with corepectomy on 4-22-03. Mine was C3-C7. I was in surgery for 3 hours. I came out wearing a Miami J Brace for 8 weeks. I had 2 ruptured discs and they were causing spinal cord compression. I got along fairly good after surgery. I had a bad sore throat but it went away within a couple days. I wsa on Vicodin and that helped. As far as sleeping I slept in a recliner for a couple weeks with lots of pillows propped up behind me. I just wemt back for my 3 month visit I am still not totally fused yet but my Dr used a Titanium plate with 6 screws. I dont even know its there. After you get your brace off you are scared to turn your head. That gets better with time. Hope this has been some help.
