I am one and half weeks post-op C5-C6 Fusion with plate and screws. I am wearing a hard collar. I also had some ligament damage and a few bone spurs they removed.
Now the problem; I opened the door on the house Saturday to let friends in and the little dog ran between my legs to run out the door. Well, I bent over real fast at the waist to catch him and the momentum carrying my head past when I stopped hurt like hell. It was hard to stand back up. Now, a few of my pre-op symptoms are back and one main one being difficulty swallowing and a new one of major pain in the fusion area and all over my right side of back and the front of my right leg. Should I have no concern thinking maybe it was a sudden fast movement and stop and just irritated the area or what? Could the bone chunk have moved?
Any thoughts, ideas or help would be great! =D>
