14 days ago, I had a C5-C6 C6C7 ACDF
Things went well. Once I was home 24 hours, my throat was incredibly swollen. I sent a picture to the doctors office. 2 minutes later, they called us saying to head to the ER while they sent my picture to the surgeon. I was fast tracked through and brought to the pre op section. Both an ID and ENT, were also involved. 7pm
I was having surgery to drain, clean out, culture the area. The ENT checked my esapbogus. We suspect that my auto-immune issues may have caused this. I am home from my 5 day hospital say
Now It is sore and achy between my shoulder blades and the back of my neck. I also feel stiff throughout my neck and I have intermittent pains and spasms in both arms.
I am taking a muscle relaxer and neurontin which is keeping pain to a 2-- 3 for the most part. I haven't had to take my Percocet for the past 4 days . Last night my husband and I went out to hear some music. After 2 hours, my body told me it was time to go home.
Is this this typicalo recovery?
