I've had lumbar fusion surgery, not cervical, but I wondered do you have someone staying with you to help? I live alone, so although I had family helping, I stayed alone as soon as I returned from the hospital. It was doable, but if i did it again i'd ask someone to stay with me for a night or two. Getting up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom when you're on pain meds and all alone is not what I'd recommend! Remember how immobilized your neck will be and try to think of how to position the tv, etc. And have clothes you can button on rather than pull over your head. I bought a lot of things at the dollar store - the easiest clothes I could think of to put on, even though not the most stylish!
