I just had a bryan disc put in on dec 9th on the c6-c7 level, recovery has been well, still a little sore and stiff, I keep having this clicking in my neck, had my post op exam yesterday, only got to see the physician's assistant, she said x-rays looked good, had no answer for the clicking, said "we don't do a lot of these, so I can't really say" as we were leaving I asked for a copy of my x-rays, they had them printed and handed them to us as we checked out, what I see is a replacement disc that has almost full compression on the rear side it looks like the mouth on PacMan on all views, no matter what position I had my neck extended or flexed... the 2 metal plates are nearly touching posterior...? It would make sense that this could be the clicking if they actually do touch... I doubt I'll get much of an answer until my next check up later this month, just curious if anyone can tell me if this is normal for a new disc, maybe muscles are still adjusting and putting too much pressure? All the other images of this disc I've looked at show pretty even space front to back... I have pic's of the x-rays, not sure how to post them.
