New and 3 days post op 2 level ACDF

3 days post operative from 3//4 and 4/5 ACDF. Turns out I have much worse osteopenia than expected so now additional fear of fusion problems. Wicked sore throat, surgery was four hours long. Every time I nod off I wake up because I can't exhale, Something at the top back of my palate seems to close off when I exhale. Any advice?

    I would call the doctor's office just to check. Maybe just swelling but because it involves breathing I would definitely call. Let us know how you are doing.
