I had a one level, C5-C6 ACDF on August 11th. I hardly have any neck pain, but the pain in my throat is terrible. I am having a hard time swallowing anything. I don't choke on anything, but food and meds get stuck there. I thought it was just a sensation, until I was able to taste my med as it dissolved. Any advice on how long this will take?
Another strange issue is my near vision is very blurry. I was at the eye doctor the week before surgery and there were no problems with near. It is a bit disturbing. I cant imagine it is related to surgery or if is from the pain meds. Anyone have this issue?
The last issue, Which I assume is anesthesia related is low blood pressure post op. They had to cut down my pain meds.
