5 days post ACDF, trouble talking, weak hand

I'm five days post-op from ACDF C67 and am a little worried about my voice and my left hand.

I can't talk above a whisper. It isn't getting any better. Throat doesn't hurt. Just seems like I can't talk above a whisper.

also, I didn't have any arm, hand weakness going in, but the day after surgery my hand started feeling weak and arm, hand slightly numb and tingling. Is this normal? PA said don't worry about it, but I need assurance that perhaps there is some swelling causing these new symptoms and this is to be expected???
