Hi, i am 7 days after ACDF surgery on C6-7. Have had some pain, diffuculty swallowing. Today twice, not doing much but felt I had to cough since something was in my throat. Coughing made it feel more closed, quickly got some water. Put the neck brace back on. I am disturbed by the feeling something is in my throat? Could the hardware have shifted a little? It was disturbing enough that I was going to the ER if it persisted.
