did anybody have difficulty with:
1)swallow- food, liquid, anything
after having cervical spine surgery ???
I had surgery on Tuesday August 4. I had anterior
discetomy/fusion ( with cage) of C5-4, C4-3.
I also had posterior laminectomy and hardware at same levels.
Since that time, I have had sore throat ( constant,
difficulty swallowing anything ( it feels like there is a lump preventing passage of food/liquid), and shortness of breath.
Doctor warned me that the above risks were possible- and I am hoping they will be short lived.
