edited 10/23/2015 - 9:30 AM in Neck Pain: Cervical
I Just came home yesterday after having a ACDF surgery on Monday, I'm doing pretty good I think, range of motion as far as in my neck is good I have developed a different type of pain the other pain that I did have seems to have diminished , I have noticed a lot of pain in the evening in between my shoulder blades that go into my right shoulder that seem to be the worst of the problem right now and maybe some headaches other than that I think I'm doing pretty good I was wondering if anybody else experienced any unusual right shoulder pain? Or or strong pain in the middle of the night between the cervical area as I know it's early but I'm just trying to find out what to expect , I also feel a weird sensation in my lower throat area almost like trapped air that seems to come and go it can be painful at times I'm not sure if that's normal to, I would appreciate any feedback thank you.

  • Hello Angelmom,I too had ACDF c5/6 c6/7 two weeks ago with similar symptoms I have pain in my left shoulder and into the top part of my arm,I find my arm feels very heavy and painful to rotate,I also have a feeling of trapped air in my throat,I hope things improve for you I just hope it's part of the healing process.I have been told because my neck has been straightened the muscles are now in a different position so need to adjust,this I am hoping is the cause of my neck pain and should resolve over time.
    Good luck,
