In brief: Cervical spine

Really any kind depends on the surgeon and the level of pain.
Most surgeons try to avoid nsaids.

In brief: It varies

It varies in part based upon the nature of the surgery and the tolerance of the patient.
Most of the time we use a narcotic and a muscle relaxer to control pain and spasm postoperatively. Thank you for the question.
