... I did have a posterior foraminotomy and fusion this year, 2 years after my ACDF. The surgery from the back was tougher, but in the end (now 6 months after) I do have less nerve pain than I had before.

... guess I feel better knowing that my head won't fall off but the pain level has not decreased. I would advise you to get 2nd, 3rd, even 4th opinions. Posterior surgery is much harder on the patient then anterior. It takes longer to heal and I know I needed more physical therapy. ... (9 replies)

... The ACDF was, by far, one of the easiest surgeries I've undergone (and I've had a ton of surgery). I woke up with immediate relief from the nerve pain and very little surgical pain. The first few days I had a sore throat, which is common as they move your windpipe slightly to get to the spine during surgery. The challenges is that you are restricted for a few weeks. I...
