Hi Everyone my name is Deborah and about 6 months ago I had my neck fused from C4 through C7, The surgery went fine, I was amazed as to how little pain I had during recovery however, it seems that the farther ut I go in my recovery the more pain I am experiencing. The right side of my neck hurts so bad and stiffens up to the point that it is painful to turn and look. I also have a hardening feeling in my neck that makes it difficult to swallow and breathe. When I do swallow it feels as if something is protruding against the back of my throat. I had a thyroid ultrasound and it was good aside from the fact that I have multiple nodules but nothing protruding into throat
. Can anyone help me with this?
