    jhillenburg - I'm currently fused from C2 to C7.  After my second ACDF, I had throat pain and swallowing issues that lasted nine months after surgery.  I had to live on pureed foods for about a month.  Two years later, I developed pain up my right ear that extended up the right side of my face, where I developed stroke like symptoms.
