I had ACDF on 6-2-10

Hi I am 28 yrs old and have/had 3 herniated disc with no clue on how it happened. My fusion was of my C4-C7 it was originally scheduled for August 18 but because of work issues and i couldnt take my leg and arm falling asleep no more we moved up to last week.  I am in on Vicodin every four hours. My questions is, How do I sleep and get comfortable...it hurts if I lay on my back, hurts if I lay on my side. I can not get comfortable. My voice is still messed up, I am now just able to eat solids without it feeling like I am swallowing a brick. So when will my voice get back to normal and how do I find a comfortable positions.  I understand it is going to hurt before anything gets better, and I needed this surgery so i dont want to sound like I am whining and crying. But I am really  uncomfortable
