Re: ?'s re:Surgery on Jan 8th, C5-6,6-7 w/possible C3-4

I only had one level done and I've had lots of swelling issues. I wasn't required to wear a collar because it was only one level and I had a metal plate put in to stablize things, but when I would feel really bad, sometimes putting on that collar would help a lot because it keeps you from moving your head which in turn keeps your neck from getting more irritated.
