    Wierd Post ACDF Operation Symptom...

    I'm 7 days Post Op right now from having ACDF with fusion at C-5,6,7 levels. I've found something really strange is going on in my body though and I don't quite understand it. I've had the hiccups off and on since the surgery. At least a couple of times a day I'll get them. Just yesterday I found that when I get them, if I tilt my head over to the left, they instantly go away. Can you figure that one out? Just curious...

    I belched nearly constantly for a few days post op. I think the manipulation of my oesophagus must have irritated a few nerves - very unladylike indeed.

    Irritation to the vagus nerve. It should resolve with time.
