Bleeding of Thyroid during ACDF c6/7

I have my surgery done on Wednesday and my doc said my surgery was complicated by bleeding from my thyroid which is enlarged due to Hashimotos.

Has anyone else had this complication and should I be concerned?



  • My surgeon said that my surgery went great but I could have had a lot of bleeding due to thyroid? He didn't say, but do keep an eye on how you feel after. He did say he had to scrape out a lot of arthritis and was sad because I am so young. I hope he got it all because it hurts! Anyway good luck and try not to worry.
