I had an ACDF in April of 2011 and have done fairly well. The only issue right after the surgery, was a paralyzed vocal cord, which only lasted about 6 weeks.
I am now having some muscle spasms and soreness in the neck muscle right beside my incision/scar. The spasms started last week, the first time, when I yawned. And it has happened a couple of more times since then.
This morning when I yawned, it did it again, and now that muscle is tight and sore.
Any thoughts? I am going to call my neurosurgeon this afternoon to see if I need an appointment to go in. Has anyone else had this type of experience this far out from surgery?
Thanks for your help in advance...
