Hello, I,m new to this site. Thought I was going crazy until I read a lot of people have the same issues I have. I had fusion on 5,6,7 - 6 months ago. It feels like I have a lump in my throat,swelling feeling, gets worse with bending ,really any activity. When I lay down ,it almost feels like my airway is restricted, especially when turning my head. Sometimes with swallowing too. My doctor said he never heard of these problems. I,m going to see another doctor next week. Just seems like something is definetly wrong. Anyone else have these issues?
