Hi there. So I am 5 weeks out from acdf c4-7. Had my follow up with doc on Tuesday and he said considering I had 3 level fusion that I am doing good. Still dealing with these dam muscle spasms. He gave me orders to start PT...but not cleared to return to work for another 4 weeks. (work not happy, but thats another story) But here is the question I have as I forgot to ask the doc. I still have a feeling like a lump in my throat and occasionally & randomly difficulty swallowing. I am however able drink water and get things down if they do get stuck. (this doesn't happen too often). Wondering for those of you who have had multiple level acdf if you had the lump in the throat feeling and when it went away? I would have thought it would have subsided by now.
Oh and I have cages and screws...no plates...and xrays prior to doc visit showed all looked good and where it should be.
Thanks for any insight!
