I had a C5-C6 fusion on 1/12/15 and my throat still 4 weeks later it feels so weird! It feels like I ate a peanut butter sandwich and have nothing to drink to wash it down. I'm also concerned about pain meds and how long I can expect to be in pain. My surgeon prescribed a healthy amount of Percocet to help, but I am going to see my pain doctor in a few weeks in case I need more. Anyone else have the throat thing? Honestly the pain is a littler easier to deal with currently than the throat thing! However, the whole thing sucks a bit. Thanks!
