I had a 2 level acdf c4-6 in December. My recovery has been pretty run of the mill issues. I am week 10 post-op. I wore the miami j brace for 8 1/2 weeks, the past week I have been moving my neck much more and experienced no pain etc, good range of motion.
HOWEVER, I have noticed I have a crackling, clicking, or what I would call popping sounds in my neck. I felt good, but today feel a little sore. I never had these things from my prior problems only now. Has anyone else discovered this, had this, and is it a sign of a problem if you had it?? I really hope not, but it is making me nervous.
