  • I had C6-7 fusion surgery 7 weeks ago and am still having problems swallowing and it seems like the food sits in a pocket after I swallow. Is this normal?
    I also have pain in the back of my neck, shoulder and shoulder blade and take pain pills daily. Anyone have these issues?
    Thanks!

  • Hello:

    I had my C5/C6 ACDF surgery this past November 25th and was released the next morning. My throat still sore and I don't even feel the need to take the Percocet every 4 hours. The doctor mentioned that I should wear the neck brace for 2 weeks and after that I could drive as well.
    I am walking about 20/25 minutes a day and would like to know other's experience regarding the length of recovery. Any physical therapy involved?
    The only surprise so far is a droopy eyelid (Horner Syndrome) on the right eye and I would like to know if anybody had such issue.

    Thanks
