I have a question for all you neckies out there. I'm just over 2 months post ACDF, cage with donor bone, titanium plate and 6 screws.
do any of you get the sensation of choking or as if suddenly there's an Adam's apple where God didn't put one (yes...I'm a female)
when I walk I can feel this thing and it is hard to walk fast. I feel as if there is pressure on my throat. I also have a hypertrophic scar that the doc thinks is slowing the healing process. Might need cortisone shots for this.
Is this normal???? In speaking with another spiney today she had similar things but she's 1 month post ACDF...so I guess we'd both like to know. I'm tired of choking on food or having to make sure I line my pill on my tongue to go down straight instead of sideways.
I can't even tip my head back to rinse my hair without it pulling and aching.
Any advice, fellow spineys?????
Thanx...any posting is greatly appreciated!!!! I love my spiney family.....
