How long does it take for wound to heal after cervical surgery
I had cervical disc replacement and acdf of c4c5 c5c6 on 9/21/2015. I'm wanting to know how long my incision should take to heal? It's still pretty swelled up and I'm almost 4 weeks post op. I had difficulty swallowing the first two weeks and still am having some difficulty swallowing now. My neck was so tight after the surgery which I was told is normal but has been so uncomfortable ...I've also had numbness under the chin and around the wound. I just keep praying the swelling goes down....I appreciate any help/advice. Thank you sooo much!
