Hi All, I was wondering if anyone else has had similar problems post acdf surgery? I had a 2 level acdf at c4-c5 and c6-c7 with cages and hardware. Prior to the surgery I was having severe headaches and neck pain but no pain radiating in the arm. Lately I have been having blinding headaches with pain in the neck radiating down my right arm. In the past month I have had 3 episodes of this pain lasting from 24-48 hours. I have also been having problems where the incision was made in the front of my neck. The area around the incision is still numb. The numbness has spread though out the front of my neck and chin and extends onto the left side of my face. The doctor told me the numbness would go away over time, but it feels like it is spreading and becoming even more numb. He said it's possible a nerve was cut. Anyone else have this type of numbness at the incision site? The doctor acted like it's no big thing. Personally I am very disturbed by the loss of feeling in my neck and face.
