I had previous surgery C5-6 in 1999. Great recovery. I just had surgery on July 17th for C7-T1. My pain is minimal but I have a very weak, high pitched and breathy voice. I can only sspeakin short sentences. I lose my breath easily. Its been over 5 weeks with no improvement at all. Doc put me on ssteroids.... No help. He seems concerned (without actually saying so). Anybody have similar problems?
