Hi! I am now 3 days post op from c4-6 acdf surgery and things have been as expected except for one thing. When I lay down on my back to sleep( which is as comfortable as any position can be right now) when I exhale it sounds like I am purring. There is a vibration I guess ? Of my vocal cords or something in my throat and it makes this weird noise, like snoring but it from my throat not my nose. It doesn't effect my breathing, I feel like its normal except for he noise and I get to sleep a couple of hours this way, but I was just wondering if this is common and if it will go away? It does not happen when I am sitting up. I still have pain swallowing and difficulty at first but if I eat something warm it seems to help. It's mostly annoying because it is like snoring when your are awake and it chases my Partner to the couch which makes me very sad.
Anyone with similar issues? Thanks!
