C456 Disc fusion - Neck Swelling?
I had surgery April 2010 all seems well with the exception that I have difficulty swallowing. This started a few days ago (August 10). I went to my surgeon and he said he could see swelling in the xray. He said that this is common and should go away with time. I was wonder if anyone else has had the same issue? I find it difficult to swallow food/beverages and I find myself swallowing constantly. My neck is itchy as well and the sugerical site did not closeup as well as I expected.
Another thing, I feel like my neck gets caught. The only way I can explain it is when a zipper gets stuck and you have to move it to adjust it. Wondering if that happens to anyone else as well.
