    you asked advice from medical professionals and they advised, nobody on the forum is medically qualified or permitted to give advice.

  • Liz I know I can't get "medical advise" it is more seeing if anyone else had similar issues how they handle it. Also this is a two part issue going on.( called the doc regarding one) I have a tendacy to over react and call the doctors when I really don't need to or not call when I really should....this is supposed to be a friendly form so I thought to ask "opionons " of others. Sorry if I disobeyed the rules.

    I was only pointing out that we can't advise, this is a friendly forum but the only suggestion you will get from members is better to play safe and get checked.

  • If you fell down the stairs only a few days after surgery I would hope the doc gets you an x ray pronto! The hardware can slip which might explain the worsening swallowing issues.
