Re: throat issues after ACDF
What does your doctor say? This is certainly something I would be asking about if you are 3 months post-op.
I am 16 days post op on a bi-level (C5 - C7). My throat was never horribly sore but certainly I have that "blocked" sensation which is improving, but slowly. I guess if I had to describe it I would just say my throat feels more "closed" and a little tight.....but I can eat anything without problems. I occasionally have an issue with a pill or vitamin that feels like it gets stuck, so I just glug a lot of water until it feels like it goes down better. I assume I still have some slight swelling due to the procedure.
We are not doctors here, I wish I could be of more help. Certainly ask your surgeon what he/she thinks.
